A New Survey Shows that California Consumers Choose Solar Service from Renewable Energy Companies, and General Motors Releases Two New Apps to Help Drivers of Electric Vehicles - Energy Minute for November 29, 2012



A survey of the 13-highest growth solar cities in California finds that at least three-fourths of the solar residential market has chosen solar service from third-party owned systems over private control and operation. The majority of the state’s small-scale photovoltaic installations are turnkey operations provided by private renewable energy companies. California leads the U.S. in solar installations, with 36 percent of the country’s total capacity of installed panels.

General Motors has released two new apps to help drivers determine the range of electric vehicles and the cost of public charging. The Spark EV Waypoint tab is integrated into the RemoteLink app, which helps drivers manage vehicle charging. The new app delivers answers to questions about vehicle range, and will plot a route with recommended charging stations. A new prototype app, Park-Tap-Charge, will show payment options when a smartphone is tapped against a charging station.
