Re: Got Solar!

Congrats on the install. 47 cents/kWh is insane. No wonder Apple went all out on solar on their spaceship. Payback must be months instead of years. One way around all the hassles of dealing with the utility would be to put battery-based solar in with the grid set up as a "backup generator"...

Re: Got Solar!

ed5000, congratulations! Most people I know had to wait far longer for PG&E to come out and install their new meter, all the while the old meter was not recording any benefit from the active solar for the owner. Good luck on figuring out an advantageous rate structure - All together it took abo...

Got Solar!

I have a new 5.5KW solar system on my roof and I just got PTO (permission to operate) last Friday. I figured this was a must have accessory to go with my I-meiv. Installation went pretty smoothly, even with a two week delay from PG&E due to the wildfires in Paradise which was understandable. In ...

Re: I-MiEV Asheville

My brother in Greenville, NC has a black 2012 i-miev but in checking google maps I see that you're over 5 hours and 330 miles away! A long ways for being in the same state. Let me know if you have any reason to be out that way.

Re: Power Hungry Vacuum Pump

I wonder why the old pump drew so many more amps.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Used Electric Car Dealer

The unique thing about this seller (Rose Motorcars) is that they're a used car dealer but, the only thing they sell are used electric vehicles. Something I find refreshing. I've been by there and they have at least 50 electrics for sale of just about any modern make and model. https://sfbay.craigsl...
