Putting solar cells onto a car and/or using portable solar units to charge an EV are apparently a flash hot button issue for many electric vehicle advocates, some (many?) of whom patronizingly, in my view, immediately dismiss such efforts as “useless”.
To the right-wing folks who are INCORRECTLY claiming greening the grid caused the power outages in Texas: YOU ARE WRONG!
About 10 years ago, in June of 2010, my ex-wife and I became the first homeowners in our Aurora, Colo. neighborhood to install a rooftop solar system on our single family home.
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.
