Take a couple plug-in hybrids and a few rooftop solar panels and that’s a recipe for testing the power of renewable energy. Up at Avista, they’re doing just that. These two hybrids are charged by solar panels on Avista’s roof. The website tracks how much juice the cars use and how much the panels produce. Avista is using the data they’re collecting now to be prepared for the time when more and more customers start plugging their hybrids into the grid. The extra dose of sweet Dutch angle on these shots is free of charge.
