WattPeople Helps Consumers See Benefit of Solar Bundling

The solar proposition is becoming more and more a part of the everyday conversation, and households are being marketed all manner of solar panel solutions for their homes. WattPeople has taken it a step further, future-proofing you for that day when you also find yourself driving an electric car in need of charging.

WattPeople has created a web application that allows users to sum up their total energy usage, taking into account not only their regular electricity bill, but also the average cost of gasoline and the number of miles driven in a year. You can select the electric vehicle of your choice to see whether the Solar EV Bundle is right for you.

What is the Solar EV Bundle? Simply put, buy a home solar installation as well as an electric car.

“The average American household spends $111 per month on electricity, $220 per month on gas for the car, and costs are increasing every year,” said WattPeople co-founder Rainer Boelzle. “Electric vehicles are the future but pose a number of challenges including the impact such vehicles may have on the electrical grid, charging, range, and stimulating consumer interest to drive widespread adoption.”

One of the issues with buying a solar power system for a house these days is that it is directly tuned to the current operations of the house. Handy, but definitely not forward looking. WattPeople is attempting to allow for the growth of a household’s electricity needs, especially if those needs are renewable-friendly.
