Oct, 18, 2007 Grab your sunscreen, because on this episode everything's powered by the sun. We'll meet "solar guru" Steve Heckeroth. Not only is his homestead 100% solar-powered, so are his vehicles. He designs and builds electric tractors, and he charges them, along with his Toyota Rav4-EV, with free energy from the sun. We'll also check in with the Stanford Solar Car Project team and their UV-powered car -- Solstice. Covered with solar panels and stocked full of lithium ion batteries, this car looks like a UFO and can drive across the country without ever stopping to fill up!
