I have a friend from my Unitarian Universalist church who I managed to persuade to buy a Chevy Bolt and who also has solar on her home, Deena R. Deena is a longtime environmental activist and has had a 5. 5 kW solar system on her family house’s roof for about a year. She is one of many, many, many people who have plugged into solar-charged driving since I started SolarChargedDriving.Com in September of 2009.
Soel Yachts, a company that designed the SoelCat 12, a solar-charged and solar-powered boat that runs 100 percent on sunshine generated electricity when traveling at speeds of six knots or below, recently released a YouTube video that highlights the unique solar-charged catamaran zooming around a beautiful tropical island.
Solar charged-driving from Christof Demont-Heinrich I put together a PowerPoint on solar-charged driving to present at my Unitarian Universalist Church on April 15, 2018. Enjoy :-)...
I was looking through Twitter under the hash tag #DrivingOnSunshine when I came across this (above) very cool video about a European trip the Sono Sion, an electric car that can charge itself with solar panels, posted by Thomas J. Thias, an electric vehicle + solar advocate I follow on Twitter. Check it out!
So, I am working toward hopefully getting solar up in the cohousing community that I moved into just six months ago, Highline Crossing Cohousing. If I succeed (cross your fingers!) it would be the second place I would have brought solar to, with the first being my old house at 4000 S. Atchison Way, Aurora, Colo. where I had a 5.5 kW solar system installed, and which ultimately produced more electricity than I/we ever used, even with an electric car (a 2014 Nissan LEAF). GoogleMap the address in the previous sentence, and you will see the solar system on the roof of that house, which divorce forced me to sell in November 2015.
