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 ;-).
The video below is a GREAT ad for the cost savings that you can generate, right from the start, when you buy or lease an electric car and fuel it with electricity generated by a home solar system.
You can use home solar as your own personal EV charging station, or "gas" station.
Charging network EVgo announced recently that it signed contracts with all its power providers to deliver clean energy to all of its chargers across the United States.
