Green Your Trips and Save
Instead of planning frequent trips to the pump and enjoying the thrill of tank anxiety in between, electric vehicles (EVs) offer convenience – with no tail pipe emissions. EVs also require less service than conventional internal combustion engines, all great reasons to make the switch. While it’s possible to keep your EV charged with grid energy, installing solar at home provides a renewable, customer-owned source of energy to charge your car.
Your miles are only as clean as the source of the electric you use, and the grid mix in Virginia for example is heavy on natural gas powered plants, nuclear energy, and still several operational coal plants. While EVs are already more efficient than a gas engine, by using solar you can truly cut your transportation emissions to near zero, help relieve electric grid congestion, and reduce reliance on not only oil but also all dirty and non-renewable energy sources.
