In the summer of 2020, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy said goodbye to longtime SACE Board member, Dr. Ed Passerini. A scientist, professor, and friend, he was a lifelong clean energy advocate who built the first solar-powered car.

Since 1977, Ed has been Driving on Sunshine™ and inspiring others with his inventive nature to push the boundaries of what's possible and chart a better future for all of us. We are honoring Ed and continuing his life's work by dedicating our Driving On Sunshine™ campaign in his name.


Please join us in honoring Ed by watching our short tribute video above, and if you are able, consider supporting SACE's electric transportation advocacy and policy work through a donation to our Driving On Sunshine™ campaign below.
