As the region’s only SunPower dealer we are excited that the Solar Impulse has landed in Saint Louis. The Solar Impulse is a plane that is powered entirely by SunPower solar modules. It has the wingspan of a 747, 800 lbs of batteries, and only weighs about the same as a car. Visit the website for more details. You can sign up to see the plane on Thursday the 6th or Friday the 7th. Its innovations extend beyond the plane itself. Due to damage from the recent weather it is using a unique inflatable hanger.
