Hi,
Is it correct to use "solar-powered"?
"Scienctists have been trying to invent more and more solar-powered vehicles."
Thanks.

    Hi, Novice.
    I also see "solar-powering". When do I use it?
    Hi, mimi. This form is not nearly as common and is somewhat awkward, but I could imagine someone using it to specify how s/he is powering something. "I'm solar-powering my water pump", perhaps. But it is not a standard phrase the way "solar-powered" is.

    Novice.
    so "solar-powered vehicles" means that solar powers vehicles and vehicles gets power from solar. Right?
