23 Feb Solar Panels and Electric Cars : The Perfect Pair
As technology continues to advance, it seems our car selections do too. Here, at Vision Solar, we want you to completely understand all of your options when selecting your electric car. From here, you can understand the amount of savings that result in your investment in solar power and electric cars.
The most abundant electric car in 2021 seems to be the hybrid. The hybrid allows you to possess the power to save money, but also have the option to still fill up on gas if it is needed. This car eliminates the number of carbon emissions that are released with a normal gasoline-powered car. The average hybrid vehicle gets about 52 miles per gallon. This is comparable to the average gasoline-powered vehicle that will get 24.7 miles per gallon. This is more than double the distance without needing to increase your weekly gas bill.
Fuel cell vehicles are not nearly as common as hybrid or an electric car. However, they do help in minimizing carbon emissions into the environment, making them a great choice for an eco-friendly vehicle. Fuel cell cars use hydrogen gas to power their electric motors. They combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity, which in return runs the motor. The only elements that are being released from the vehicle after this electricity is created are water and heat. The benefits of a fuel cell vehicle also rely heavily on their efficiency for trucks. Electric vehicles commonly struggle with the ability to power such a large and heavy vehicle. However, because fuel cell vehicles have centralized refueling systems, this makes them a great way to power these large vehicles for long distances up to 350 miles.
Out of all of the electric car options, the full electric battery is the most environmentally friendly and also financially beneficial. There are no fossil fuels involved and their power relies only on the battery. Solar panels can save you up to $1,600 a year. This amount does not include the amount of money you are saving on gas.
With your solar panel installation, you can now save money on your utilities, and your gas bill. Switching to solar before the purchase of your electric car is the perfect way to save up for all the things you always wanted to splurge on, but never could.
