Solar power and electric vehicles (EV) each get a lot of attention amongst their own segments of followers, and there’s certainly a lot of overlap there. Even the mass media is picking up on the exponential growth trends and falling prices in these two markets. However, I don’t think the combination of the two gets the attention it deserves. Solar power + electric vehicles = “driving on sunlight,” or “gallons of light” as some have put it. If your aim is to have a positive impact on the climate crisis (and/or water crisis and/or air quality crisis), there’s often no better thing you can do.
Of course, there are a lot of companies working to make the world a much, much better place via this combo. I wanted to spend a little time highlighting some of these partnerships for those who don’t obsessively follow the solar and EV industries industries.
