Once Upon a Solar-Powered Ice Pop Truck

Here’s a little math equation for those of you who are into such things.  Don’t bother checking it — I already made sure it balances.


1 former USPS truck + 10 solar panels + a few planks of reclaimed Douglas Fir from a train station in Maine + 5 iPads + 4 vats of blood, sweat, and tears from Rob Ida Concepts + 70 gallons of fuel capacity + 1 enchanting playlist featuring 77 songs about the sun = 1 Rolling Rooftop Revolution!

Speaking of magic, I have seen people look downright enchanted when they first lay eyes on Tonks.  The orange!  The shimmering panels! The popsicle infographics! The free and all-natural GoodPops!  What’s not to love?  Have you seen her yet?  She is truly a stunner.   And the way she purrs. .  . It’s like being in a room full of elated kittens shaking maracas and shooting off M80s.  Soothing to say the least.  She doesn’t quite fit the required height/weight to get her onto the next season of America’s Next Top Model, but we’re sure if she qualified that she would win the runway walk-off. Va-va-va-ZOOM!

Am I biased?  Maybe, but I’m not the only person who is crushing on the truck. Our Rolling Rooftop Revolution was covered by Huffington PostLA TimesTreehuggerNY Daily NewsInhabitat, and too many more to count.  Our 250+ employees are also smitten.  They come in early and wait in a line that wraps around the block just to pose for a photo in a mock-up of the truck.

Elvis loves our truck too.

Honestly, how can you NOT love this truck?   She’s a biodiesel solar-powered ice pop truck driving around the Eastern Seaboard making people smile and giving them brief but delicious sanctuary from the heat.  How refreshing!  If I haven’t convinced you of her greatness, check out some of the pics from New York and Massachusetts on Facebook.

Switching topics slightly, do you know what state is often labeled “The Diner Capital of the World”?  Hint: it is also home to the Miss America pageant, jughandle turns, and the first EVER drive-in movie theatre.  If you guessed New Jersey then you get a gold star on your chart.  If you LIVE in New Jersey then you are in for a treat, because our Rolling Rooftop Revolution is headed there next!  Follow Sungevity on Twitter to find out when the Rolling Rooftop Revolution is in your neck of the woods. Or city.  Or beach.  Or whatnot.
