While electric cars are an excellent step forward, they’re still dependent on energy from generally dirty sources of energy. The average person will not have solar panels on their garage awaiting the new green car of the future.
But what if — when you bought your car — you were given the option of buying a solar accessory that would be easy to assemble and turn your vehicle into a true green marvel? Solar City thought that would be a pretty cool idea as well and teamed up with Tesla Motors to sell their solar roof alongside the all-electric Tesla Roadster. Simply come home, park underneath, and let the sun do the rest.
