What is a Solar Powered Air Compressor?

An easily accessible free air

compressor that is used to inflate car and bike tires, powered by a solar

generator.

Slide3

Tire Pressure 101

Not many people know it, but it is important to check tire pressure at least once a month. Low tire pressure creates heat and friction on the road, which creates a drag, and forces vehicle to work harder.Not properly inflating tires can be costly for the environment, and your wallet.

Fact

A Carnegie Mellon University study showed that:

Americans drive roughly 12,242 miles a year at 22.5 miles a gallon, and pay an average of $3 a gallon.

Proper tire inflation can save you 3% on gas a year...about $432.

mall Project Size

Easy Construction

No major change to infrastructure or campus

Slide10

Implementation

Project is of a fairly small scale and one unit could be completed and installed within roughly one

week

by a private contractor.

Will need to order pre-fabricated stainless steal base pieces.

Level Concrete Base will need to be poured.
