EV + solar PV delivers $300k of ‘sunny money’

sungaspeder-norby-guestDuring the past six years, my wife Julie and I have generated 60 megawatt hours of electricity with our 7.5 kW home solar system – and we’ve driven more than 60,000 of what SolarChargedDriving.Com calls Sun Miles®, meaning miles driven by an electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) whose batteries have been charged using solar energy and/or using electricity from kWh credits amassed via solar offset generation.

Differently put, for the past six years, we’ve owned our own solar micro power plant.

By July of 2012, the $30,000 we spent on our solar PV system was completely recovered by the savings in utility and gasoline cost.
