Charging Up with Solar

I saw this Associated Press article in the Syracuse newspaper yesterday. A few years ago I was visiting a friend in Las Vegas and she had a Prius that had a small solar panel on top of the car that was able to power the air-conditioning in the car.  I thought it was a great idea, especially in such a sunny place.

Now with more and more electric cars on the highways, it makes perfect sense for owners to have solar panels installed on the roofs of their garages to provide power to charge the vehicle.

Hopefully the price will come down even further but as one man said, “the real reason to go solar is that we have to do it.”
