A $7000 solar panel rooftop system pays for itself from gas savings in five years,” said executive Rob Harlan in a press release.

Some vehicles, such as the Tesla Model S, motor bikes and buses, are already on the road. Prototypes include a fuel cell race car from the University of Alberta.

The Drive the Future Expo takes place June 7 at the NAIT Central Campus in Edmonton, AB.
