Designing Lightyear One: the solar roof

Simone Regondi — PV Engineer

At Lightyear, we all appreciate the unique value of Lightyear One’s solar roof; it’s a direct clean energy source and a core technology we are developing.

Indirect CO2 emissions of electric power plants supplying grid charging can be low or even zero when coming from renewable sources. Carbon emissions, however, also occur during the making of a car and at the end-of-life of a vehicle. At Lightyear, we are building up o..
