May 2010 PV & EV Report

Tesla Roadster Test Drive in Portland May 2010
The Seattle sales office of Tesla took a little road-trip down to Portland and I was lucky enough to get to drive a Roadster. The picture above is of my friend Jim as he pulled out on the start of his test drive. See that big smile? That is known as the EV-grin. Driving an electric vehicle is a blast, driving a sports car is a blast, putting the two together and you are sure to smile.

Excluding the Tesla drive, I logged 446 miles of EV driving this month, using an estimated 320kWh. During the same time our PV system had its best month this year and produced 475kWh of energy. Driving on sunshine is an easy thing to do.
