Interesting that Chrysler is behind that poster. a car company that, as of yet, does not sell any plug-in cars.

the IGY showed what good progress could be made when people collaborated together.
Sharing information creates quick exciting progress.

I've heard that the new Prius Prime has a solar roof option (the car's roof, not your garage's) that will charge the main battery at about 2 miles a day. 700 miles a year for free. :)
