The EVs of the 2015 Solar Decathlon
Short Description: 
The biennual Solar Decathlon returned to Southern California last week, with a twist. There is a significant difference in the rules this year; a first in the contest’s 13-year history. Teams and their houses can now compete in an electric commuting category by making enough electricity to operate a battery-electric vehicle.

Ten Years After
Short Description: 
As of today, winter solstice 2012, I have been driving electric vehicles for ten straight years and generating the electricity for them from sunlight. When Zan and I bought that RAV4 EV we had no idea how it would change our lives, but change them it did.

National Plug In Day: An Accidental EV Wrangler
Short Description: 
Former Plug In America board member Alexandra Paul describes the process of rounding up hundreds of EVs for National Plug In Day's flagship event: history's biggest EV parade.

208 Alexandra Paul and her Chevrolet Volt, July 28, 2011I have a lifelong phobia of organizing get-togethers. I avoid anything more complicated than having my book club over for a potluck.

So what did I say when Zan Dubin Scott, Plug In America's Communications Director, asked me to recruit EVs for National Plug In Day’s Santa Monica parade?

I said yes, of course.

Did I mention she wanted to make it the biggest assembly of plug-in vehicles in the world?
