Welcome to the Solar Ranger Project

Welcome to the Solar Ranger Project

A Message From The Vice Chancellor

The Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) Solar Car Team is in the process of designing and constructing its second solar-powered vehicle to compete in the 2011 Global Green Challenge in Australia. Since the team’s inception in 2007, we have built, tested and participated in the 2009 Global Green Challenge. With the knowledge and experience gained over these years and through continued optimization of our current vehicle, Solar Ranger 1, we anticipate our second car to become our most successful yet.

In order to realize our vision of building and racing solar cars, we rely on the help and generosity of corporate partners and sponsors. Your support will directly contribute to the team’s implementation of theoretical principles learned in class to help us win races. Your help and generosity will also:

* Contribute to the research and development of innovative technology
* Demonstrate your commitment to higher education
* Gain media exposure
* Play a role in protecting our environment and advancing alternative energy technology

While the experience for the team is invaluable to members as student engineers, your support will also provide your company with extensive media publicity and coverage, during testing, travel, racing and road shows. This project is not only an excellent educational experience for students, but also an opportunity to promote alternative energies in a positive light, a plus for any forward-thinking corporation.
