🔋No more "You're wasting gas and bad for the environment!" notes being left on your windshield.
We have 24 solar panels with battery backup (but grid tied), and it’s the main reason I’ve been driving electric since 2012, since Helco was zeroing out about 350 KWH a year of excess electricity that we produced. It’s been real nice driving on “sunlight”. Although get this: I’m on a program where they buy electricity from me during the day at 48 cents per KWH , but as long as I charge from 9pm - 6am, I buy it back at 24 cents per KWH ( I live in Hawaii where electricity is super expensive from the grid) . The end result is I effectively charge my care with Twice the electricity I produce !I'm getting a solar array on my home by the end of the year, woohoo! Mine will actually be fairly "green" if I drive it long enough, which I fully plan to. As green as a Tesla, Leaf, Bolt, etc.? absolutely not, but substantially greener than even "fuel efficient" mid-size trucks... so I consider it a big win!
