"Green Giant" to Participate in Automotive X Prize
The Physics Lab of Lake Havasu took a major step toward automotive energy and fuel conservation when their "Green Giant" Chevy Blazer was accepted into the Progressive Insurance prestigious $10 Million Automotive X Prize competition.
Physics Lab of Lake Havasu, http://www.physicslablh.com, is focused on exploiting regenerative technology, and showing that heavy vehicles especially, can benefit from Electric Vehicle (EV) technology. The Green Giant is a 4-wd full-size SUV that is entered in the Mainstream category of the Progressive Automotive X PRIZE and the "One Gallon Challenge". The drive train is fully electric, and is charged by weight exploiting Regen-EV-Shocks, solar thermal, waste heat/steam, photovoltaics, diesel, hydrogen and overnight grid charging of batteries.

We are exploiting the laws of physics, by using regenerative, and renewable energy sources, to update a vehicle's drivetrain to benefit from Electric Vehicle (EV) technology.
