In celebration of the season finale race scheduled today, eMotoRacing is proud to announce the 2014 Sponsor of the Year: Solar Alternatives.
Based out of New Orleans, Solar Alternatives was founded in 2008 to provide powerful clean energy designs using advanced technology and a skilled, versatile team. With a focus on client-centered design, attention to detail and constant innovation, the company portfolio includes all major solar technologies as well as cutting edge applications such as mobile solar power systems.
Back at the start of the 2014 season, the eMotoRacing series founder, Arthur Kowitz, was introduced to Sol Alt rep Jeff Cantin, who was excited to participate in assisting eMoto in any way he could. Jeff showed up to the first couple races with mobile charging trailers, and was amazed out the interest and fascination they evoked in the racing fans. Shortly after, Jeff offered to loan the eMotoRacing series a mobile charging trailer branded with the eMoto logo, which would enable race participants to charge their electric motorcycles directly off the power of the sun, rather than having to plug in to a source which still used fossil fuels.
Solar Alternatives – Mobile Charging Station
The charging unit not only powered the bikes — it ran tire warmers, and various other gadgets during race down time, as well as served as a race office to tend to electronics such as lap tops and GPS software.
We are proud that Solar Alternatives stepped up to the plate and became an integral part of the success of the eMotoRacing series. Be sure to CLICK HERE to check out more on the mobile charging unit they provided, and CLICK HERE to check out their website.
