This Tesla Model X is fueled by sunshine, as indicated by its Colorado vanity plate.

I’ve got a Colorado vanity plate too that tells the world that my EV is fueled by 100 percent green, clean renewable energy.

I’ve been driving around in a 2014 Nissan LEAF with the vanity plate SOLPWRD — to signify the fact that my LEAF is fueled by sunshine — for a bit more than three years now (actually, technically my LEAF is now fueled by wind: I had to sell my house with 5.5 kW solar system last year due to divorce, and I now pay Xcel Energy two extra cents per kWh to subscribe to Xcel Windsource).

I’ve seen a bunch of other EV vanity plates on various LEAFs, Teslas, BMW i3s, Chevy Volts, etc. here in Colorado. But I don’t recall actually having encountered other Colorado EV drivers, on the road, with a vanity plate that tells the world they’re running an EV on sunshine — until today.

Driving to work this morning, I saw a Tesla Model X with the Colorado plate SUN PWD. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to take a quick picture of the car and plate. Don’t worry, we were stopped at a red light when I snapped the photo above with my iPhone: I never text, or take pictures, when driving.

How many of you have vanity plates to tell the world you are driving on 100 percent, green, clean solar-generated electricity? What’s on your plate? And what other ‘solar-charged’ plates have you seen?
