Spring means more solar-charged EV miles

tom-moloughney-2013Now that spring has rolled in the temperature isn't the only thing that's going up: So is my solar electric production.

My 8.775 kW system can produce up to 60 kWh a day under ideal conditions. That's enough to power my all-electric ActiveE over 200 miles, or enough to power it about 100 miles and supply all the power my house needs for an average day.

Pretty cool stuff. Powering my car and my house for the day on pure sunlight is really awesome.
