I used to say solar energy was not good for moving things.
It was good for heating water or making electricity, but not for transportation.
But with this new Electric Hybrid Vehicle... and after checking out www.calcars.org to learn about electric vehicles (EVs), I’ve done a complete 180!

After 30 years of being in the solar industry, I was so wrong about what I thought solar energy could do.
So, if I could have a wrong perception about solar energy after 30 years, I guess I can understand that YOU too could have a misconception about solar energy.
I think there’s a lot of people that don’t fully understand solar energy:
- How it works...
- What it can, and can’t do…
- When it could be applicable…
- Affordable… and
- A host of other questions.
But there’s a huge belief that solar energy is a good thing… a VERY good thing, in fact.
Can you believe that my dad, Ward Jr., started installing solar pool heaters here in Southwest Florida over 35 years ago?
Here I am with my dad, and grandpa, in 1978 celebrating the Grand Opening of our new store in Cape Coral - at the very location we're at today! ;)
Back in the day, it wasn't about 'going green' and 'renewable energy' - the gas crisis of the 70's made solar pool heating much more attractive.
I was fortunate enough to be invited by my dad to participate in this wonderful new technology!
Solar pool heating has always been the most economically viable form of solar energy. It's always made economic sense.
Today, 35 years later, we've expanded our products to include more than just solar pool heat - we also offer:
- Solar Electric Power (or as we call it, photovoltaic (PV) power)
What's interesting is how the use of solar energy plays a big role in our goals today relating to 'going green' and committing to a sustainable future...
Who knew this is where I'd be today!
