    Electric cars aren’t completely green. Sure they don’t emit those toxic fumes in the air while operating. Charging these up though, do leave a substantially dark carbon footprint. Japanese automaker Nissan has struck upon a cleaner and greener way to charge up these eco-friendly modes of transport, using solar energy to power up electric cars with a new charging system that uses 488 solar cells installed on the roof of the Nissan headquarters building in Yokohama. This seems to be a working example for those planning to set up EV charging stations. Hooking these stations onto solar panels only makes them greener, reducing strain on the grid.
