Nissan Leaf

Nissan Leaf 7-1-14

We went all Electric EV sooner than I thought we would and leased a Nissan Leaf in December of 2013.  Why lease? So we could trade it in 3 years down the line for another EV with more distance on a single charge.  We love how quiet it is and it actually has some power taking off.  It handles 90% of all our driving needs as our daily travels do not exceed about 45 miles.  We have solar so we just plug it in and let the sun do the rest.  For us an EV that goes 200 to 300 miles on a single charge would be perfect.  If we went on a really long trip we would most likely rent a car to save the on mileage as rentals are now down to as little at $15 per day.  If you noticed we are parked at Tesla charge station you might want to click on the picture to watch our YouTube video that explains just what we are doing there.  There will be a lot more EV’s to pick from in 2017 so the excitement is picking up.

SolarCity made it to our home in September of 2013 and we are finally on our way to Energy Independence and a Self-Sustaining Lifestyle !!!!

Now its on to an all-electric car.  That one might take a few years especially if we keep dreaming about a Tesla Model S or X.  Just click on the SolarCity picture for more information on why we chose that company over all the rest and to see our 24/7 Live Solar Production!

Home / Blog

OK – So I am coming to the conclusion that the front page of anything is the most important up to the minute news so I am back to blogging on the home / blog  page and not keeping a separate page for blogging.  This Home / Blog page is now an all in one page Home / Blog page.  If you are ever on a different page and want to get back to the home page just click on Ringwald.net and that link will always take you back to the Home / Blog page.  The Rent page will eventually be moved to http://www.nhbllc.com/ once I scrap the old web site and update it to a WordPress site like this one which will then be mobile friendly too.  It is hard to change old habits but a blog on the home page does make sense.  comments appreciated.
