A lot of people who don't know much, if anything, about electric cars and/or "hate" electric cars (read: some ICE-heads) think they are/claim they are 'too expensive.'
Ed Knapton, who lives in Texas and has both a Chevy Bolt and a Chevy Volt, just posted a few pictures to the Facebook Volt Owners Group. He's just added a new vanity license plate to his impressive solar PV + EV setup, "SOLR EV".
I've written before about how an 84-mile EV -- a 2014 Nissan LEAF for which I started a three-year lease and then saw my now ex-wife move out six months into the lease -- severely limited me and my driving possibilities here in the Denver area (although it was good enough for virtually all of my Boulder-Denver-Aurora driving).
I took the Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail from Littleton to the Colorado Rockies game last night (the Rockies got plastered by the L.A. Dodgers, 12-4, BTW). I parked at the Mineral RTD parking lot, which is the very end/beginning of the so-called "D" and "C" lines here in the Denver area. And, what do you know? The spot I found was right next to a brand new Tesla Model 3!
As you may have heard, starting in 2020, California will require that all new single-family homes include a solar power system. (At present, about one in five new homes has solar added when built.) This will help California meet its ambitious goals regarding greenhouse gas emissions, and will continue California's leadership in home energy efficiency.
