Our house is host to a 23 modules system that were installed in 2012 and have been operational for 6 years now. The picture is from soon after that, when we bought our first Chevy Volt, and shows one of our daughters plugging in the car to charge. The solar, the car and the house are all grid connected. However, we are proud to say that the solar panels produce more energy in a year than our Volt requires for charging for all it’s driving in the year – thus we have a solar powered car!
