I'm always on the lookout for custom plates that promote electric cars and, especially, those that promote renewable energy + electric cars. I happened to come across one such plate on a Tesla Model S this afternoon parked at my ex-wife's apartment/condo complex in Centennial, Colorado.
I've got a vanity plate that advertises solar + electric vehicle synergy on my 2017 Chevy Bolt, SOLPWRD. I thought it would be interesting to see what kinds of other vanity plates are out there for electric car...
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.
