I've got a 7 yr. old 15 panel pv system in zip 93436 that pretty much handles my modest home and a Volt driven -20 mi./day. I'm on a good grid tie contract. With the generous rebates and credits, it's paid for its self and the Volt gives me a 2kw 120v back up power source that could keep us going for a week with just the gas in the tank. 8)

Very happy!

I've seen mobile / trailer homes with over 8kW of panels on them.

With a little $400 genset as a supplement when the weather is cloudy would be fine to keep a daily-use Tesla going so long's civilization is within 50mi.

Living off grid, obviously the farther away you are from your work and shopping, the more expensive your annual transportation cost will be.

But HH wants to live 300 miles from the nearest store/city, and therefore EV's are useless!

Nor did I claim that. I was merely extrapolating your next attempt to claim that EV's are useless, only for rich people, too impractical, not available in the right colors - or a combination of all of those things.

I eagerly await it.
