The Driving to Net Zero Short Film

The Challenge

The Challenge

solar 1Through dozens of articles and thousands of words, we have told our story of living and driving powered by sunshine. We’ve encapsulated this year long story into a brief 90 second short (very short) film.

After 100 years of little change, revolutionary changes are now underway in our transportation and energy segments.

The “Thermal Age” is ending.

The “Renewable Age” is beginning.

The transition will take some time… however:

  • Never before has it been possible for a homeowner to create their own energy for their home and cars.
  • Never before has it been possible to power a home and cars with carbon free, emission free, energy that is less expensive than fossil fuel sources.
  • Never before has it been possible to so broadly share the wealth of energy among both individuals and corporations with equity to all reaches of our planet.

*Editor’s Note: This post also appears on Peder’s blog. Check it out here.

Imagine our world so advanced, we understand that our most important strategic partnership on earth is with nature.

You can live and drive powered by sunshine.


I am very optimistic for a wonderful future, and I believe a new definition for living a healthy and premium life is required. It simply must include a strong partnership with nature, using the renewable energy provided by nature.

Cheers!

Entrepreneur, solar power advocate, EV advocate, blogger, drone pilot, and filmmaker. Peder, you certainly are a man of many talents! 😀

Not trying to be a downer, but this is even more of a challenge for people who live in apartments & condos. We need more utilities to install solar, and we need more apartments/condos to install charging.

PG&E also just submitted new plans to roll out more chargers after their original plan was nixed.

California is working hard on these issues . . . other states need to get with the program.

Peder, you are a model for us all. Cheers!

Very nicely done!

You clearly have more resources than most. Thank you for putting them to use for the greater good! (While enjoying some of the benefits yourself 🙂 )

If you sold the i8, you could replace your gas appliances with electric ones (and more solar panels), then you’d truly be zero net energy!

The next step is to get rid of the natural gas then? Nice video!

SCE Credit seems overstated. That’s the amount you could apply towards future bills if you needed it. However, if you turn that credit into cash you only do it at 11 cents per kilowatt hour and receive much less money. You are paid cash at the rate SCE pays their sources, not what you pay (15 to over 30 cents per kWh).
This year I’ll roll my credit forward at retail rates to power our i3.
