Impulse at the Richmond Field Station

CalSol will be attending the BERC Symposium on October 18, 2012 to show off Impulse to the hundreds of people who have come to discuss the major energy issues and solutions of our time. Come out to see us on display in Lower Sproul Plaza from 6-9pm on Thursday’s portion of the events. You can learn more about the event and purchase tickets at their website: berc.berkeley.edu

Some topics of discussion at the event are about shale gas, carbon capture and sequestration, energy subsidies, utility scale solar, and much more! Maybe we aren’t utility scale solar but we have fully functioning proof of vehicle scale solar!

We will see you there!

 

 

 

Cal Homecoming – Go Bears!

Impulse at Homecoming!

Impulse at Homecoming with Pol, Alex, and Sam explaining Impulse to visitors

UC Berkeley just completed its homecoming weekend festivities which included us beating UCLA 43-17 at our brand new stadium as well as many of the engineering teams out on display for everyone to see! Impulse was out in front of Davis Hall on Saturday next to the super mileage vehicle, human powered vehicle, and concrete canoe teams. Hundreds of parents, alumni, and UC Berkeley affiliates wandered by our vehicle, all of them with mouths wide open in awe.

After a few hours of showing off our car to the public we packed up the display and drove Impulse back to the Richmond Field Station. We decided to take San Pablo Avenue instead of the freeway for the return trip because we wanted a more calm drive back. It’s also fun to take city streets because so many more people get to see the car and snap photos of it.

Go Bears!
