We often get e-mails and pictures from readers who are solar-charging their own EVs. The picture above is one of these pictures. It comes from Scott Mohler, who writes–>
Dear Editor, I just found your site today. The site is a great way to help educate those looking at EVs and solar. I have attached a photo of our 19 kW solar array that fully powers our Nissan Leaf and our home.
It will soon be powering our new Tesla Model S 85 kWh model, which we should have by March 5 2013. We have 9,500 miles on the Leaf, all powered by the sun. The return on investment is better than the stock market. The return on investment is over seven percent – and it’s tax free. This is based on a per kWh cost of 16 cents. You are welcome to post this on your site.
