Welcome to the EV Club!

EV Club is a place for us to help spread the word that electric vehicles are good for the environment and are making a difference on this wonderful planet we call Earth. The idea for the EV Club is simple. By combining and tracking our combined EV stats (miles driven and such), we show the world measurable results of the difference that we are making to help motivate more people to become electric vehicle owners as well as invest in clean alternate energy technologies such as solar or wind. As a fun bonus, as the club grows, I will be looking for solar company and electric vehicle company endorsements so that the club can offer periodic incentives from these companies to further help those interested in installing solar systems or acquiring EVs. I will be thrilled to be able to give away a set of solar panels, a Nissan Leaf, or a Tesla Model S to club members one day.

July 7th, 2012 marked the one year anniversary of a 1986 Toyota MR2 that I converted and put into service. I am averaging about 50 miles on a daily basis and charge the car off a 3.6kw solar system that I installed a few years back. The amazing results with this combination is that the payoff for the solar panel system decreased from a projected 20+ years to a little under 9 years with the addition of an electric vehicle. I am tracking actual payoff here http://mr2ev.com. I've also recently ordered a Tesla Model S for my wife which will further accelerate this payoff. Please share your own success stories on the EV Club!

I dream of one day living in a city where there is no SMOG because all the cars on the road are electric powered off renewable energy!

Since the site is new, feel free to give me feedback by posting on anything that you think can help make the site better and easy to use.
