It is widely forecasted that by 2030 electric cars will account for 64 percent of U.S. light vehicle sales, totaling 24 percent of the country’s light vehicle fleet. If this forecast holds true, it will mean 8 to 47 percent declines in greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. cars when compared to 2005 levels.
This is great news for the U.S. environment and also for the pocketbook of the average American. But thanks to the power of the sun, the news gets even better.
Sun Power, a trusted RevoluSun partner, recently formed alliances with Ford and Nissan to power the Ford Focus and its CMAX Energi, as well as the Nissan Leaf using Sun Power’s high efficiency solar panels. The SunPower systems that are offered for this purpose will produce an average of 3,000 kWh of power per year. The system is meant for an electric car owner who drives about 1,000 miles a month.
Here at RevoluSun, we are leading the pack on using solar for EVs. In fact, we are expert enough that our own electrical utility, HECO, had us build their first-ever EV charging station.
While the implications for savings on the average household electricity bill are clear, even more phenomenal is the impact on greenhouse emissions that clean electricity for electric vehicles (EVs) will have on the U.S. environment. When powered by the sun, it is estimated that EVs will result in a 20 to 69 percent decline in emissions from U.S. light-vehicles by 2030 when compared to 2005 levels.
Purchase an EV and power it by the sun. Save money and the environment. Change the future.
