With water restrictions becoming the norm in a lot of places (and I guess winter weather in other places), I thought I would share my experiences with no-rise wash products. I have to admit I was dubious of the whole concept and believed I might as well take sandpaper to the finish of my car. However, after doing this for a year, it has become my preferred approach.
A couple of disclaimers:

First Roadtrip (Continued from Part I)
The Supercharging experience literally changed the way I viewed the EV experience in less than an hour. I plugged in with 37 rated miles remaining and immediately started charging at 120 kW. Watching the rated miles tick up at that rate finally gave me the realization that electric vehicles could very well be the preferred transportation choice of the future - and it was here now. I realized in an instant that when Tesla finished the build out
My Tesla Model S journey started in early 2013. I had been casually watching Tesla since the first photos of Model S prototypes were published but in early 2013 I realized this car was for real and you could order it now.
I do not consider myself particularly "green". However, I am a car enthusiast and a technology geek. I installed an 8 kW photo voltaic solar system on my roof in the summer of 2013 because I am fascinated with the technology that allows energy from the

I'm currently driving my Model S through its third Canadian winter. I thought it might be helpful to discuss some of my "lessons learned" about driving the Model S in the cold.

Next week will mark 2 years of owning my Tesla Model S. I also passed the 50,000 mile mark two weeks ago. I thought I would share a few impressions from the thrill of initial ownership, to being the first to complete Elon Musk's 400 Mile Challenge/Production Vehicle World Record for the Longest Drive on One Charge, to settling into daily driving what many of us believe is the best car ever built. I have also been tracking costs and stats very closely to
Fees not based on use
Despite the recent plunge in the cost of distributed generation sources such as solar PV, the utility grid is still critical to maintaining our quality of life. The cost to maintain and upgrade this infrastructure should be borne by those that use it the most. Net Metering policies run contrary to this approach. Imagine two solar homes… home A manages it’s use to sync
