Watch this video by an LA Times reporter who is charging her electric car with solar panels on her roof.
She did not mention the fuel savings by solar powering her car. Think of your own experience and you know that you spend between $1,200 and $2,400 per year on gasoline to go about 15,000 miles. In contrast, The U.S. Department of Energy recently estimated that an electric vehicle will cost about $400 per year in traditional electric utility costs to drive that same 15,000 miles. Even better, by using home solar, there is no ongoing fuel cost. The future can be a very exciting thing!
