So, a new 20 kW solar system with two separate arrays on two separate roof areas, including a set of garages, is going up in our Highline Crossing Cohousing Community here in Littleton, Colo. :-)
Have you been enjoying the cleaner air where you live? How about the reduced stress load due to having to do less driving and sit in far fewer traffic jams? Yeah, I thought so! Me too!
For past five years, always in the spring, I have developed a consistent, irritating dry cough. I have been tested three times for allergies across that time and the results have always showed that I have no allergies.
I recently wrote about how I turned in my 2017 Chevy Bolt LT nine months early on a 39-month lease. In that blog entry, I focused primarily on how much money I would save by doing so over leasing a Tesla Model 3. I posted a link to this SolarChargedDriving.Com entry to a Chevy Bolt Facebook Group and received nearly 150 likes and more than 100 comments. My blog entry sparked a lot of interesting discussion and debate and I thank all those who posted likes and comments and feedback.
I've been driving a leased 2017 Chevy Bolt LT since Sept. 2017. It's been a great little car: Zippy, fun, quiet, fuel efficient. It's got plenty of range (238 miles), including enough range for a 2,400-mile round-trip road trip I did with my teen daughters from Denver to Santa Barbara, Calif. and back in the Summer of 2018.
I have been following, writing about, and advocating for electric vehicles for more than 10 years now. And I have to admit, I am growing impatient with the extremely slow uptake of EVs in the United States. After nearly 10 years of having production electric cars available for purchase in the United States, EVs have achieved a paltry penetration rate of about 2%.
