Electric Vehicle Charging
The two largest sources of residential emissions, are electricity production and transportation. The Shugar Ecohome addresses both of these sources through renewable energy and electric vehicle integration. This provides a way to not only use the sun’s energy for the building, but for our vehicles as well. I have been an enthusiast for electric vehicles and has been driving electric to work since 2001 years with over 170,000 miles of solar powered transit.
Electric Vehicles as a Broader Solution
Electric vehicles provide a way for humanity to shift from oil based transportation into a sustainable method. Tesla was one of the founding companies in transforming world view of electric cars by providing a sports car with extremely high performance (see image below and referenced article). Large scale integration of PV on homes and solar charging provides another co-benefit for sustainable development.
