Save more for the ride
The “Save More for the Ride” blog section is devoted to energy efficiency and my own personal experiences and observations on this crucial topic. If you have already have a solar system – or when you do go solar, clearly, the more sparing you are with your home electric use, the higher the percentage of the electric miles you drive which will be what we at SolarChargedDriving.Com call Sun Miles™ -- solar-powered miles driven by an electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) whose batteries have been charged using solar energy. “Save More for the Ride” focuses on different – and often cool – things you can do to reduce your home electric use and therefore save more of the annual electricity generated by your home PV solar system for, that’s right, the Ride!
Can an American family of four use fewer than 200 kWh of electricity per month?
Turns out it can!
We used just 186 kWh of electricity in the month of May here in our 2,100 square foot Aurora, Colo. home – and we didn’t go back to the dark ages in order to do so. We also generated 840 kWh of electricity with our 5.59 kW solar system, or more than four times as much electricity as we used!
