Revenge of the Electric Car

Revenge of the Electric Car

I received an email that the movie “Revenge of the Electric Car” would be premiering at the Hollywood Theater on Friday 11/4 so I picked up the phone and dialed up SSE customer John Tangney who has an interest in Solar Power, EV’s, and is on the waiting list to receive a 2012 Plug-In Toyota Prius.

The film follows three auto executives – Elon Musk of Tesla, Bob Lutz of GM, and Carlos Ghosn of Nissan as they spearhead their company’s attempt to move forward with the market release of their electric vehicles (EV’s) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV’s)

John ans SSE installer Robbie Johnson putting the final touches on his PV disconnect and solar kWh meter.

Personally, I enjoyed Paine’s previous 2006 documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car” a little more because it seemed to be full of more facts and statistics, but found this movie to be educational and inspiring.  Here is a link to the movie’s trailer.

John Tangney's finished solar array in Happy Valley, OR. This 3.28 kW PV system will produce approximately 3,000 kWh/year. This is enough electricity to power an electric vehicle approximately 12,000 miles.
