Solar Power

Cruising with my Swagcycle through Babcock Ranch, the 100% Solar Town in Florida

All Towns Aren’t Created Equal, In fact, most towns aren’t created at all. They just happen. The decade of careful planning that preceded the first turn of a shovel at Babcock Ranch is just one of the countless ways Babcock Ranch sets itself apart. With a seamless melding of modern technology and timeless hometown charm – all nestled within expansive natural spaces – America’s first solar-powered town provides a whole new way of life.


As part of this new community, electric vehicles are encouraged including, cars, bikes and boats. This allows all residents to cruise around on the power of the sun. As of today one of the cheapest ways to do so is with the Swagcycle Envy. I picked one up at Walmart for $250.
