Want to escape high gas prices? Tap into solar-charged driving

editor's blog iconWith gas prices rising to an average of nearly $5 per gallon in the United States, a lot of people are complaining.

Instead, many of them — actually, most of them if we went to a 100% renewable energy grid in the United States — could be driving an electric vehicle fueled by affordable, locally produced and extremely patriotic solar-generated (and/or wind-generated) electricity.

You can save thousands of dollars by driving an electric vehicle and fueling it with home solar generated electricity.

Once you’ve paid off your home solar system, your solar gas is free. You literally save thousands of dollars, even tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your home solar system using it as a gas pump.

You also do not send ANY money to Big Oil nor to brutal, repressive authoritarian Russian dictators and tyrants!

Why aren’t you driving electric now and, if you can — yes, not everyone can, BUT a lot more of us can than you might think — tanking up an electric vehicle with local, green, affordable solar-generated electricity?

Seriously, why not?
