The cohousing community that I live in -- Highline Crossing Cohousing -- here in Littleton, Colo. is FINALLY getting solar after a one-year wait for the installation and, prior to that, 18 months of me, and several other residents here in this community, working toward persuading our community to add a 20 kW solar system.

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 have been following, writing about, and advocating for electric vehicles for more than 10 years now.

There is a lot of misinformation and outright anti-Electric Vehicle propaganda circulating on the internet. After all, BIG OIL and its moneyed interests have A LOT to lose if the world converts to electric vehicles which are far more environmentally and health friendly than any gasoline vehicle ever will be.
Audi will introduce its all-electric 2020 e-tron Sportback at Los Angeles Auto Show Nov. 20. The e-tron Sportback is the car builder's second fully electric production model from Audi of America, and, like the original e-tron, will offer a driving range of more than 200 miles per charge.
