Number of solar-charged electric vehicles continues to rise

Sean Palmer and Rita Hennessy in front of their solar-charged Chevy Bolt.

editor's blog logoQuite frequently someone will post to a Chevy Bolt Owner’s Group on Facebook that they are solar-charging their Bolt. The picture to the right is an example of exactly that: Sean Palmer, a Bolt driver, showing that he’s driving his EV on renewable energy. In the comment stream below his post of this picture to Facebook, you can see many other people with Bolts/EVs noting that they also use solar to partially/fully charge their Bolt and/or other EV(s).

More and more people are recognizing that solar + electric cars = fueling freedom, money savings, true zero emissions driving and a chance to stick it to Big Oil, OPEC and the “drill-baby-drill” crowd.

It’s not surprising that there are more and more solar-charged electric car drivers. I could see that this would happen way back in 2009 when I started SolarChargedDriving.Com. Now, what we need to do is to keep pushing and pushing renewables + electric cars to get to 100 percent renewable energy generated electricity to power our buildings, homes, lights, stores, and, of course, our vehicles as well 🙂
