Solar carport protects your cars, saves you energy

This solar carport, straight out of Japan, manages to keep your cars safe from the elements while also providing a bunch of free power for your house. Of course, with the thing costing $40,000 plus installation up front, you'll need to use it for a few decades to pay for itself, but won't you feel like a good person the whole time?
