Solar-charged electric cars are no panacea

zgeditors-blog-entry3So, I haven't posted anything to SolarChargedDriving.Com in about a week. I'll confess part of this is the fact that I've lost some of my solar-charged 'mojo' after 3 1/2 years of doing this site and still having only home solar but no EV.

I don't have an EV to add to our 5.59 kW worth of solar PV here in sunny Aurora, Colo., because we're likely going to be in Germany from August 2013 to August 2014, and it made no sense to buy, or lease, an EV (which have been available for a bit over a year in Colorado) when we knew we were going to be away for awhile.

But simply because I've lost some of my mojo here on SolarChargedDriving.Com -- in my own defense, there are more than 1,200 entries and stories on the site, many of which are still completely timely, relevant and helpful to those still discovering solar-charged driving -- doesn't mean I'm still not surfing about on the Internet, spreading my own brand of environmental and EV + PV activism ;-)
