It’s ‘Smart’ to solar-charge an electric car

real-goods-smart-carWant to win a solar-charged All-Electric Smart Car?

Then you might want to consider entering the Real Goods Solar Smart Electric Sweepstakes. Real Goods will hand over the keys to an Electric Smart Car and install a 1.5 kW solar system to fuel the car to one lucky winner of its sweepstakes.

The contest shows, once again, that solar and electric vehicles are increasingly coming together, and that more and more solar installers get it, meaning they understand that plug-in electric vehicles are a boon for solar.

The contest isn’t the first of its kind. Back in 2011 we reported that a UK solar installer, Planet Solar, gave away an all-electric Nissan LEAF to Charles and Val Willett of Lancaster 🙂
