Parking Lot Power Grid

Imagine all those thousands of cars parked for hours in a shopping mall with unused electricity stored in their batteries.

Each car could donate up to 50% of its battery level in exchange for free parking and help recover the parking lot’s usage of electricity. Or for huge parking facilities, cars could be attached to a power grid to power community needs and to offset carbon emissions while vehicles are not in use.

It only takes a few minutes to recharge the battery of a car while driving, then it’s ready again to donate the next time it parks.
