I just don't see the cost working out. On top of that if you have the car for 10-20 years it's going to be the same as having an old 8 track. Car NAV systems don't seem to age well, I don't see this keeping up with the times. 5G will be out before too much longer.

A solar hot water heater will save you money in the long run.

2. Roof Savings

Solar panels will protect your roof from wear and tear.

3. Health

Power plants contribute to 60,000 asthma attacks a year. Solar panels do not.

4. Energy Independence

Who wants to be reliant on foreign oil and powers abroad for their energy needs? Not me. Solar is a way to escape that.

5. Global Warming

Yep. Fewer CO2 emissions lead to a decrease in climate change.

6. Jobs

60,000 US citizens work in the solar industry. More solar, more jobs."
