In Focus: Solar Food Trucks 1

Food trucks are all the rage, but have actually been around for decades. Street food has now become mobile, and this foodie phenomenon sure beats drive-thru burgers and other traditional fast food options. The food truck trend is moving towards sustainable, local, and organic food in order to bring affordable, tasty, and healthy food to the masses.

Many food truck vendors are taking their sustainable responsibility to the next level by traveling in trucks that use solar power. Here are some of the most popular solar powered food trucks located in a city near you:

Arlington, VA – Solar Crepes

This food truck uses local and organic food from sustainable sources. They also package their food in eco-friendly wrappers. What’s more, their food truck uses a 90-watt solar panel that produces an average 590 watt hours of power every day.
