Solar bullet train planned in Arizona
Solar energy is increasingly being used to power day to day things. However, a train running on solar energy was too much to think about, up until now. However, an idea initiated under the SolarBullet Campaign aims to make a solar bullet train available between Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona. This zero emission means of travel will drastically reduce the commute from two and a half hours to half an hour. These bullet trains, which will run at approximately 220 miles per hour, would be realized by covering the tracks with huge solar panels taking advantage of the abundance of solar energy in that region.
Let us hope the SolarBullet Campaign gets the huge financial and technical support needed to realize this project which is a step, albeit small, towards decreasing carbon emission.
