Combining Solar Power and Your Electric Vehicle – Too Practical to Pass Up…
Zachary Shahan, September 17, 2011 (Clean Technica)
"…A small, 1.2-kilowatt solar system priced at around $4,000 will cover charging costs for an electric vehicle for up to 40 years…For $4,000 you can buy your ‘gas’ for the next 40 years.
"For the next forty years you will be producing the power for your EV for $8.33 a month. Those are fixed dollars, not dollars that will rise with inflation, the $8.33 per month is locked in."

"The $185 per month that ICEV owners will be paying for gas? In forty years, based on past inflation, will cost you $1,027…Price for gas now = $185…Price for electricity now = $8.33…Price for gas forty years from now $1,027…Price for electricity forty years from now $8.33…
"Forty years from now $8.33 will have the buying power of $1.44 in today’s dollars. For less than the price of a latte, you charge your EV for a month…On an annual basis, $12,324 for gas, $100 for electricity…What’s not to love about that?"
