In just ten years, hybrids and full electric vehicles (EVs) by quirky cereals have gone transport mobiles to mainstream commuter. A type of electric vehicle offers almost all the major automotive manufacturers and sales are constantly increasing. But are economically sound road EVs of a State-sponsored fad or the future? And rooftop solar is useful as a source of energy for your car?
Have questions for Barry? In the comments to share, and they can be answered in the next episode.
On this week energy renewable energy world show, we explore these issues with our special guest, Pete Levy, founder of IntelliChoice, the automobile inventory software experts. As Pete EV bought, he asked me some basic questions about solar and EVs. After we crunched the numbers became very clear that some slightly cheaper than gas cars, EVs with the economy are still compelling, as gas prices rise and solar power is cheaper. To turn off show this week and to figure out, if one is EV in your near future.

His current efforts focus on reducing soft costs for solar power systems, cause the system rates against double from Germany, in the United States.
Although Barry may be known for his outstanding work in the solar industry, he has hands-on experience with a variety of energy-saving technologies. He makes residential energy audits since the days of punch cards, one of the first ground source heat pumps in the early 1980s developed and always adheres to the laws of thermodynamics.
