Just like me — I had the foresight to buy the domain name SolarChargedDriving.Com way back in 2009 and create a web site devoted to covering and promoting the synergy between solar energy and electric vehicles — whoever bought these domain names, and they appear to be a solar panel company, also views EV + PV as a big deal!
It is a big deal!
You can save yourself tens of thousands of dollars in the long run by putting solar panels on your home, garage, in your yard, etc. and using them to generate the “fuel” for an electric car such as a Chevy Bolt.
If you cover 100 percent of your EV charging with the solar panels, you’re also driving as close to emissions free as you possibly can — yes, there are still fossil fuel emissions associated with building solar panels, and electric cars, and shipping them, etc., though once the electric grid goes to 100 percent renewable energy, solar panel and electric car production will be ZERO emissions!
Other benefits of solar-charged driving include:
- fueling independence
- no money going to Big Oil or OPEC
- fueling convenience
- no more pumping gas at dirty gas pumps (in snow, rain, ice, wind, cold, heat, etc., etc.)
What do you think about this solar panel company, Discount Solar Supply, trying to capitalize on solar-charged driving as a way to boost its solar sales and business?
Great idea? Not so helpful? Somewhere in between?
