Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.I shot this picture from the 8th floor of Children's Hospital in Aurora, Colo. just now. My blue solar-charged, all-electric Chevy Bolt (roughly in the center of the photo) is dwarfed by the SUVs and pick-up trucks that are parked right next to it.
In the more than 10 years I have been doing SolarChargedDriving.Com and advocating for solar-charged driving, the electric grid has gotten considerably cleaner in the United States -- and in many places around the world.
When you need to replace a hot water heater, your furnace and/or air conditioner, your stove/oven, consider electric options, including an electric heat pump.
About 10 years ago, in June of 2010, my ex-wife and I became the first homeowners in our Aurora, Colo. neighborhood to install a rooftop solar system on our single family home.
I feel like I am about to explode and I cannot, and will not, wait any longer to unload on one of the worst solar installation companies in the West: Sopris Solar. This, even though they are not finished with our solar installation, and lashing out right now could possibly make things worse. Of course, I am not sure how things can get worse because Sopris has been such an incompetent, poorly run solar installation company.
