Electric Vehicle Charging

Another feature of the Shugar Ecohome is integrating electric vehicle charging, which is often powered directly by the building solar panels. 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.
