Yes, solar is really taking off around the world! ...
California’s Governor Brown recently released an executive order announcing a new Zero-Emission Vehicle Initiative.

Quite frequently someone will post to a Chevy Bolt Owner's Group on Facebook that they are solar-charging their Bolt. The picture above is an example of exactly that: Sean Palmer, a Bolt driver, showing that he's driving his EV on renewable energy.
