Quite frequently someone will post to a Chevy Bolt Owner's Group on Facebook that they are solar-charging their Bolt. The picture above 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 the post, 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).
I was just surfing and Googling around on the topic of solar-charged driving, EV + PV, etc. when I came across a very interesting article summarizing a report co-authored by the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London and the Carbon Tracker Initiative.
I've been driving my 2017 Chevy Bolt LT for about 5 months all over the Denver/Boulder, Colo. area. I have seen perhaps 6 to 8 other Bolts across that time. Not very many.
So, it's 2018, and Wired, a supposedly "progressive" media outlet with supposed expertise in new technologies just published an anti-electric car article with a telling headline, 'The potential pitfalls of electric cars, in 5 charts,' that, surprise, surprise -- NOT!, recirculates the same old arguments about electric cars allegedly being "just as dirty" as gasoline cars.
So, about four months ago I turned in a 2014 Nissan LEAF I had been leasing for three and a half years and started a new three-year lease on a Chevy Bolt. It’s been a great decision for me, especially since I am in a post-divorce, one-car household.
So, I have a friend from my Unitarian Universalist church who I managed to persuade to buy a Chevy Bolt, Deena R.
