Electric Cars and Solar Team Up –
If you’re considering a solar system, you should also consider including your car in the equation. Think of the return on investment (ROI) in the long run – for both your sake and the environment. The benefits of using solar power extend well past your home. Try to look at the bigger picture: you will no longer need that much energy from your energy company while notably reducing your carbon footprint. Overall, you will live healthier, all the while reducing your costs.
As with every great investment, same with electric cars and solar, after paying for itself, solar continues to save you money for years to come. Take into consideration how abundant the sun is where you live, which way your roof faces and whether there is any shading in the area. With this considered, you may just be able to enjoy your own solar panels.
Electric cars and solar use energy that has been stored in rechargeable batteries. They have the potential of reducing all the hassle of maintenance: they require no oil or oil filter changes, and no replacements of timing belts or exhaust system.
It makes sense that if you already have a solar system installed (or if you’re thinking about installing one) that you use it to power your own electric vehicle as well. Not only it is more convenient financially, but it will also greatly contribute to the “green initiative.” Since electric vehicles do not require gasoline and emit zero emissions (both while driving and charging), it will go a long way to saving you money in the long run. In order to power up your electric vehicle with solar energy all you’ll need is the solar electric system and a Level II electric vehicle charging station (which can be mounted on the wall). Contact us for any additional information. We’d be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
If you’re still pondering whether or not to purchase an electric car, think of it like this: instead of driving to the gas station, you can fuel it in the comfort of you own garage. It might take you a little while until you get used to the idea, but soon, you’ll get to enjoy all the benefits that come with going green.
The tendency is to look for healthier alternatives and to reduce CO2 emissions, especially in crowded cities. We may not be able to change altogether, but we can make small changes everyday while doing our part. Make the decision to protect yourself and the environment today. Think of it as a change for both your future and your children’s. The sooner you install your solar system and start the driving an electric car powered by solar energy, the sooner you will be saving money and making a difference. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Go solar now!
