1. Workplace charging

My son and daughter-in-law both have free chargers at their places of work, a nice perk.

2. Put solar on the roof of the cars.

It will cut down the load on the power grid.

4. They are pretty heavy

And god forbid a rock from the truck in front of you suddenly had small rocks going all over the place. Itís bad enough with a windshield cracked, but now possible solar panels?

5. 40" x 80", 50 Pounds. Will withstand hail. 400 Watts.

If you are parking in the sun all day at work or at home you would gain a good pile of KWs. Rocks from a truck would probably not bother the horizontal on roof panels as much as the windshield. Have to say, I never had a broken windshield from rocks from a truck in my 57 years of driving. Solar panels aren't glass but rather plastic like and wouldn't shatter but might get damaged so the circuits were broken....worse case.

Luckily in Florida, they are free.

3. For some reason I can't get the link to open. Something on my end.

 

Biden is pushing for 15 billion to build charging stations. He has been pushing it for months.
