What You Need to Know

My Motivation:

It all started with the lease of a Nissan Leaf. I was always intrigued by the thought of having an electric vehicle and the availability of the Leaf from a major manufacturer and the evGo fast charging infrastructure in the metroplex made it look like a good time. I looked into a small solar initially thinking it would be just enough to generate enough to compensate for the Leaf charging, but soon discovered that the economics of a larger system made much more sense. The popularity of electric driving in the family led to leasing 2 Volts, my wife and I each drive a Volt, and we have now replaced the Leaf with a BMW i3. My philosophy has always been that technology would solve our environmental issues and I felt it was finally possible to start doing so economically and without changing our family’s lifestyle. I would not have done the solar unless it made economic sense. I would not have chosen electric vehicles unless we could drive them normally without inconvenience. I am glad that all that has been possible and happy to share our story with others..
