What is interesting is that while gasoline engines have lower torque at low rpm’s, electric motors give a more constant level of torque, which is highest at low rpms. So if you hit the gas from a stop it’s unlike anything you have ever felt before. At it’s peak acceleration, the car delivers 200 Kw of electric power. The car will travel 250 miles per charge with a cost of one cent per mile to power it. Compare that to a typical car which might cost 10 times that in fuel. Better yet, there is no luxury tax. Sells $100,000 with a refundable reservation payment of $75,000. Expect to see them on the road next year.

    Me and Micheal were thinking about purchasing a few residential solar panels for our home recently. The only issue was the price. The most inexpensive system we identified was around five thousand dollars. It would have taken us several years to recoup that amount. At any rate, we happened across these directions for creating your own residential solar panels. We chose to have a shot at that way. It saved us a great deal of money, and the totally free, environment friendly electrical power is excellent! :) We run several of our appliances off this grid.
