Scientists warned us that a pandemic like this was coming, we didn’t listen.
Both Democratic candidates for United States President support the Green New Deal – what does that mean for their plans to address climate change and make it possible for more people to drive an electric vehicle?
Let’s face it. Americans are obsessed with SUVs and crossovers, which make up around 40% of all vehicles sold in the U.S. In addition to the mounting costs of gasoline, our love of SUVs is also costing the planet in terms of carbon emitted by sports utility vehicles (compared to more efficient sedans and hybrids.)
Electric vehicle (EV) sales in the U.S. are nearing 1.5 million, with significant growth recorded month over month since 2011 (see Veloz chart below). At this rate, the U.S. is slated for 1.28 million EV sales in 2026 alone. While we’re at it, let’s throw another number into the mix: 20X. That’s the projection of 20X more EVs on the road by 2030 than today.
In states like California and Colorado, it’s a no-brainer to install a home solar system. Even with the upfront costs, home solar provides a strong ROI and energy resilience amid unpredictable electricity rate hikes and natural disasters. Additionally, you can save 26% on your solar system thanks to the federal solar tax credit.
Following up on my account of our family odyssey this past summer (Part 1 + Part 2), I thought I would offer a coda on traveling in the colder months…not to mention with a third child now outside the womb! This go-round, we headed southeast, with our farthest point out being Scottsdale, AZ. The total distance traveled was right around 2,000 miles, over nine days.
The convenience of ridesharing services has made companies like Uber and Lyft as essential to daily life as the morning cup of coffee. Whether you take an Uber every day to work, use Lyft occasionally when you’re on vacation, or drive for both companies to make some money, ridesharing doesn’t look like it’s disappearing anytime soon. Due to the sudden popularity of these companies, they are constantly recruiting new drivers to their existing fleets. However, with the ever-increasing number of drivers, these companies will probably require some sort of fleet management software to ensure their drivers can be tracked. Thanks to companies like Lytx, these ridesharing fleets can improve their safety and increase their visibility. This ensures the management can keep an eye on every car going out to pick up a customer. Whilst it’s great that these ridesharing companies are constantly growing, what about their carbon footprint?
Busting myths about electric vehicles could (and probably is) a full-time job for someone out there, especially on the topics of EV batteries and charging. Today, we’re going to bust 3 of these myths that I’m sure most of you have heard.

Electric vehicles are a perfect fit for the sharing economy. Teslas are some of the most popular vehicles on peer-to-peer car rental platform Turo. In the near future, EV owners could be earning money by letting utilities use their vehicle batteries as a tool to stabilize the grid, and by renting out their cars on the Tesla Network.
