On evs & phevs

In this blogging section, I’ll riff on EVs & PHEVs, from both a practical perspective and from a political perspective.

Renewable energy + a Tesla = A game changer

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.

Number of solar-charged electric vehicles continues to rise

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).
