    cool EV site.

    Lots of good info on the conspiracy to keep electric cars off US roads.

    It extends up to Canada too. It's really sad.

    http://www.ev1.org/

    Far to much to cut and paste. It's a little foil-hat-ish, but they make a lot of good points.

    GM, with all it's troubles could be saved tomorrow if it resumes building the EV1. I agree with that whole heartedly.

    You would need the area equal to about five football fields to gather enough solar energy:sun_smiley:to charge the batteries enough to go around the block twice, Batman.:

    Huh?

    The area of the surface of my roof is enough to power my house for a whole day.

    A 3 ft by 5 ft solar panel is capable of producing 500 watts.

    Even if I were to get a pitiful allowance of 100 watt/square yard, each football field is 100 yards/50 yards or 5000 square yards.

    One football field would pruduce 500 kiloWatts. **EVEN IF** I was driving a Tesla super-sportcar, which uses a peak 185 kW(when accelerating 0-60 in 3 seconds or travelling at 200 mph), I could drive for almost 3 hours after being hooked up to a weak grid the size of ONE football field for one hour. It's far more likely that during mid day, one football field produce more than 2000 kW.

    Many people who used the EV1 found more than enough solar power from their rooftop arrays to power thier home and their car in a grid-tied system.

    I HOPE you know that you are grossly exagerating.
