Studies have shown that electric cars are only as green as the power source. If your home is powered by coal, then so is your electric car. The best way to truly go green is to buy a solar panel system and recharge your EV using that. To promote their solar systems, SunPower has launched a contest where one lucky winner will be hooked up with a $16,000 solar system.
We don’t have to tell you about the numerous benefits for solar panel systems, from essentially free power to numerous government benefits that make these systems increasingly affordable for regular people. Solar panels are the first step towards building an independent energy grid based around renewable energy, and electric cars have the added benefit of acting as portable grid storage thanks to their massive battery banks. Buying an electric car and a solar panel system go hand-in-hand these days. One day we may even have solar panels embedded in the body of electric vehicles, though that day is still probably pretty far off.
SunPower has been in business for over 30 years after getting its start in California’s famed Silicon Valley, and in that time they’ve installed over 4.5 gigawatts of solar panels all around the world. SunPower has also started installing new Maxeon panels that gather more energy using fewer panels, which helps cut down on costs and makes installing systems on smaller homes easier. You don’t need to own a McMansion to power your home and car with the sun.
Best of all though, SunPower has launched a contest where one lucky winner will recieve a solar panel system valued at $16,000 for FREE! To be eligible, you have to be a legal resident of select areas of New York, California, Arizona, Colorado, or Hawaii, be at least 21 years of age, and have an electric or utility bill that is over $100/mo. on average.
