National Drive Electric Week – Electric Vehicles 101

COVID-19 disruptions have pushed personal transportation to an all-time low – instigating what hopefully will be some permanent shifts in our telecommuting habits. While it may seem counterintuitive to be investing in a new car at this moment, global impacts to the auto industry mean that affordable, more efficient electric vehicles are now more accessible than ever.

Join CEC’s Director of Energy and Climate Programs, Michael Chiacos, and Barry Rands, SLO Climate Coalition’s Green Transportation Specialist – both EV owners and industry experts – to learn which 100+ mpge electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid might be best for you.

We will discuss financial incentives, charging, range, and how to pair home solar with your EV for maximum savings. Find out how to purchase a new EV for the price of a Toyota Corolla, and used EVs for as little as $5,000. Learn how to save $50,000 on gas with an investment of $6,000 on solar panels.

CEC Webinar Series – Home Solar + Electric Vehicles

If you’ve considered switching to an electric vehicle (EV) – and would like to charge at home with solar energy – now may be the perfect time to take the leap and learn how to Drive on Sunshine!

Please join us to learn how driving electric pairs perfectly with going solar. We’ll cover EV options, help you consider the vehicles that will work for your lifestyle, and share how incentive programs make EVs more affordable than ever. We’ll also discuss the basics of solar, and how CEC’s Solarize Santa Barbara makes it easier and more affordable to go solar, add home energy storage, or both.

The 2020 Solarize Santa Barbara program is open July 28 – October 31 to residents in Southern Santa Barbara County. Solarize has helped over 800 Central Coast homeowners go solar, working toward a future where 100% of the electricity that powers our homes, businesses, and cars is generated from clean, renewable, and local sources.
