editors-blog-entry3I happened to be Googling a bit this afternoon and ran across this very interesting initiative: The Electric Vehicle and Solar Initiative

The initiative brings the EPA and South Coast Quality Management District (in California) together to promote the synergy between electric vehicles and solar energy 🙂

That’s exactly what we’ve been doing here at SolarChargedDriving.Com since Sept. 2009.

Here’s what it’s all about–>

“The EV Charging & Solar Initiative provides assistance to organizations to procure affordable EV charging stations, with the option to site solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems. Participants of this Initiative will receive free assistance to assess and ultimately secure EV charging stations and/or solar PV systems at workplaces throughout the South Coast air basin. Non-profit organizations, local and state governments, colleges and private sector companies located in the South Coast air basin may participate in this Initiative.”



It’s not exactly clear when the initiative was started — or, if it is being negatively affected by the Trump anti-EPA and anti-environment era.

It’s a great idea — and very definitely worth adding to SolarChargedDriving.Com’s “Solar Resources Page” — something I will be doing today :-).
