Team Profile

The University of Maine Solar Vehicle Team is a dedicated group of undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty members dedicated to the advancement of clean energy transportation. Drawing from a variety of backgrounds ranging from engineering to education, the team understands the necessity of green energy in our changing world.  Team members are provided with a hands-on approach to real world problem solving as they interact with corporate and political representatives in order to accomplish the team's mission.

Along with vehicle design and construction the team participates each year in the NESEA American Tour de Sol. The NESEA American Tour de Sol is a race/rally organized by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association with headquarters in the town of Greenfield, Massachusetts.  The NESEA American Tour de Sol is a yearly competition and an educational media event designed to bring practical electric vehicles recharged by renewably produced electricity into everyday use. Electric vehicles are promoted as the cornerstone to a sustainable transportation system, which is good for both the environment and the economy.  For students and individuals, the NESEA Tour de Sol offers a challenging design project: to build, test and demonstrate a solar assisted electric vehicle. For the institutions represented, the NESEA Tour offers unparalleled opportunity to showcase and promote the institution on a national and international level.
