We have one more reason to Dump The Pump and buy an electric car now. More and more Solar power installations means more Energy Independence and the real Distributed Power Generation.
After initial allocated CAPEX your running costs will be very low and the rising Gas prices will not affect you any more. The same will apply with the attempt of the Big Oil to put you on another needle - Hydrogen, when you again will be at the mercy of the same Military Industrial Complex running your life today. New Lithium and Solar Technology allows you to break free from the dependence on the Energy Supply.

and why it all matters to you:
Electricity that homes and businesses produce could double over the next 25 years
"In the not-too-distant future, everyone could be an electric company, selling power into the grid just like the owners of giant generating plants.
The idea of powering the electric grid from a multitude of sources is called distributed generation. Homeowners can already buy solar generators and furnaces that simultaneously produce heat and electricity. On the horizon are home battery systems that could let homeowners store solar power generated during the day for use at night.
Distributed generation isn’t pie-in-the sky — the know-how exists to build these systems. But the technology is held back by cost and by regulations that don’t allow for tiny contributions to the power grid. Federal energy experts figure costs will drop and regulatory issues will be overcome, and that the amount of electricity homes and businesses produce through distributed generation could roughly double over the next 25 years. That’s not enough to replace big generating plants, but enough to have a big impact.
Here’s a rundown of the three main distributed generation technologies. MarketWatch."
