I have long been very interested in the question of how much it (does not) matter(s) when one plugs one's electric vehicle in, especially if, like I do, I have the choice of plugging into a home rooftop solar system.
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.
A couple of weeks ago, Sopris Solar completed the installation of a two-array 19.6 kW solar system on the roof of one of our garage block units and the roof of our HOA Community House here in Highline Crossing Cohousing Community in Littleton, Colo.
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.
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!
