PV Solar Electric Production Storage in Aptera’s batteries


Edited: Oct 4



Let us imagine… (my bucket list)

I have a PV Solar electric system with DC power inverter, which is capable to divert power to storage batteries, but have not yet invested in the merging technology.

Imagine being able to store some or excess electric power generated by a  PV Solar system into the Aptera’s huge battery pack, which could be tapped into in an emergency if electric power goes out?!

Present battery storage systems for PV Solar systems, depending storage capacity, could be well over ten thousand dollars… Having the huge Aptera battery packs “invested in and sitting in the garage” that could store this power and could be tapped “if needed” would be huge….

I.e., Another feather in the wingless flight vehicle’s (Aptera) hat!

Complementing Aptera’s attributes/offerings

Cost effective solution/option for existing and future PV Solar system owner who want to store power for emergency use. Cleaner emergency power option over a gas powered emergency generator.

  • Although the planned wheel skirt is practical from a design standpoint (style and aerodynamics), many have voiced concerns because of ground clearance in snow, pot holes and on primitive roads.🤔I wonder if a dual purpose skirt could address concerns? I.e.,: Where the outside of this skirt could be removed (which would be needed anyway for tire access) leaving the above option abbreviated fender “look”. An Aerodynamic wheel cap could be inserted. The full skirt could be reattached for good road/fair weather driving and best appearance, and return efficiency.
  • Those wheel pods look like they would snap off hitting a curb, and cost thousands to fix or replace. How delicate are they? How expensive are they to replace? Is this something a typical mechanic can do? Is there really a big gain from this design or is it more of a style signature? maybe make the car a bit wider and enclose them?
  • I will almost definitely upgrade my suspension with air suspension. Would there be any clearance issues if I used a 6" diameter air spring? I work at AKTV8 in Michigan and we do a lot of software validation with the air manifolds, and like to use extreme vehicle scenarios like an 1800lb. 3 wheeled vehicle for test vehicles.
