    The Industry Metrolink Station parking lot will have an added touch of green by next year, and a load more of parking spaces too. The station located at Brea Canyon Road in California will have a thousand new parking lots and carports, all covered with a shed that does a lot more than keeping the sun away from these vehicles. The parking lot roof will soak in the heat of the sun and generate renewable energy for the Southern California Edison. That’s not all. This evergreen parking lot will also feature charging points to plug in you EV to juice up! The rooftop alone is expected to generate about 2 megawatts of power, integrating solar photovoltaic cells. The project costing $1.2 million will be built by the city using general funds.

    Parking your ride at the Industry Metrolink Station in California won’t be a treasure hunt for parking spots any longer, with this renewable energy generating initiative sprouting up.
