With gas prices rising to an average of nearly $5 per gallon in the United States, a lot of people are complaining.
You actually don't need that much solar on your home, garage, in your yard etc. to produce enough electricity to fuel an EV 100 percent with solar.
Many years ago, I wrote extensively on this web site/blog about the many intricacies and complexities of what I call "solar offset" charging of an electric vehicle vs. directly filling up with electricity that has been/is being produced directly by a (home rooftop) solar system connected to the same electrical box into which an EV charger and/or the wall-socket into which you're plugging your EV into.
Craig Toepfer is one of an increasing number of Americans who are driving on sunshine, or, as we like to say at SolarChargedDriving.Com, he’s plugging in to the power of the sun by using home solar to create fuel for his electric vehicles.
Ten years ago, on Sept. 8, 2009, I launched SolarChargedDriving.Com into the world -- and on to the World Wide Web. A decade later and more than 1,200 articles and blog entries, thousands of photos and dozens of videos, and nearly 300,000 unique visitors from well over 100 different countries later, SolarChargedDriving.Com is still here!
Ok, so the music to this video promoting solar-charged driving produced by a website called PV4EVS.Com is a bit over-wrought, and the video itself is kind of goofy -- in a good (self-ironic?) way ;-).
