Honda, SolarCity team up to offer EV + PV

honda-solarcity-screen-shotSunPower has teamed up with Nissan and Ford, Solarcity has worked together with Mitsubishi, and now Solarcity and Honda are pairing up to push forward solar-charged driving.

The solar company and car company today (Feb. 20) announced a partnership to make solar power more affordable and available to Honda and Acura customers in the U.S., providing a cleaner source of electricity at a lower cost than utility-supplied power.

As the firms put it in a news release -->

"Honda and SolarCity will explore opportunities to integrate solar power and electric vehicle recharging, envisioning a future in which Fit EV and Accord Plug-In Hybrid owners will be able to charge their cars from the power of the sun."
