Electric Plug-In Vehicle, First in Grand Junction
Bozarth Chevrolet has sold the first American made, plug-in Chevy Volt in Grand Junction... to High Noon Solar! High Noon Solar will power the vehicle with a solar system already located at their offices and use the vehicle as a company sales car. Plus, info on an event this weekend to learn more about the Volt & solar.
Ed Bozarth Chevrolet is selling the first plug-in electric hybrid vehicle to High Noon Solar, who will power the vehicle completely by solar power. The Chevy Volt is a hybrid electric car, meaning the owner can drive completely on electricity for 35 miles, then use a gas engine to go another 340 miles, for longer trips. The 35 mile electric range allows the average U.S. driver to make their daily commute with absolutely no tailpipe emissions. Plus, pairing the car with a No Cost Solar program from High Noon Solar allows drivers to run their cars on clean, renewable solar power. This provides a new solution to an on-going transportation problem, where our fuel comes from highly polluting sources bought from conflict-ridden areas of the world.
The 2012 Chevy Volt will be on display at Ed Bozarth Chevrolet this Saturday the 22nd, from 10am- 2pm. High Noon Solar representatives will be on hand to answer questions and give out information about the No Cost Solar program from High Noon Solar, which allows homeowners to receive a solar system with 40-80% annual savings and no capital investment.
High Noon Solar will be using the 2 solar electric grid ties already installed at their offices to power the car. The car will be used as a staff vehicle, for meeting with clients and performing site visits. Here's some more information on the Volt, from an article written by High Noon Solar in the Grand Junction Free Press.
