t's amazing how much more high-tech solar-charged driving is today than it was back in 2014 when I first plugged our First Generation Nissan LEAF into solar at our home at 4000 S. Atchison Way in Aurora, Colo.
One of the great myths about electric cars is that "they" are too expensive -- and usually when someone uses "they" to refer to electric cars they mean ALL electric cars are allegedly "too expensive".
I took the Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail from Littleton to the Colorado Rockies game last night (the Rockies got plastered by the L.A. Dodgers, 12-4, BTW). I parked at the Mineral RTD parking lot, which is the very end/beginning of the so-called "D" and "C" lines here in the Denver area. And, what do you know? The spot I found was right next to a brand new Tesla Model 3!
I'm always on the lookout for custom plates that promote electric cars and, especially, those that promote renewable energy + electric cars. I happened to come across one such plate on a Tesla Model S this afternoon parked at my ex-wife's apartment/condo complex in Centennial, Colorado.
Solar charged-driving from Christof Demont-Heinrich I put together a PowerPoint on solar-charged driving to present at my Unitarian Universalist Church on April 15, 2018. Enjoy :-)...
So, I am working toward hopefully getting solar up in the cohousing community that I moved into just six months ago, Highline Crossing Cohousing. If I succeed (cross your fingers!) it would be the second place I would have brought solar to, with the first being my old house at 4000 S. Atchison Way, Aurora, Colo. where I had a 5.5 kW solar system installed, and which ultimately produced more electricity than I/we ever used, even with an electric car (a 2014 Nissan LEAF). GoogleMap the address in the previous sentence, and you will see the solar system on the roof of that house, which divorce forced me to sell in November 2015.
