Precisely 10 years ago to this month, REC Solar workers were on the rooftop of my Aurora, Colo. home installing a 5.5 kW solar system that is still there.

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!
