Solar power uses sunlight in order to generate electricity in order to run cars. The possibility of running automobiles completely from solar power is
slim. Using solar power produces no emissions and is renewable. However, there are problems with using just sun light to run the systems. Currently,
the vehicles need the sun to be out, so cloudy days and nights do not work well for the vehicle.
