I thought this might be interesting to some. We have solar installed to power our house. When the Clarity arrived the solar can power both the house and the car...sometimes. It isn't as straight forward as that. We started with a system that was hindered by an undersized inverter so we weren't getting the full benefit of the roof panels. It took a while to convince the contractor to upgrade the inverter. At the same time, with a special deal from the contractor, we added two more panels for a total of 20. Now the system was operating at peak and we began to seriously pump extra power back to the city grid. Hot summer hit (normally 105-112 for several weeks) and the solar system was taxed by the house AC but keeping up. Then the local wildfires hit. The smoke from the wildfires stayed over the city for several weeks. The ash coated the solar panels and blocked the sun. Finally the smoke cleared, we washed the panels for the third time, and our system is once again able to supply more than we need. One would naturally think solar is either sized properly or not. But there are so many variables. For example last year we car pooled with other parents to take kids to school. That cut 25 miles out of each school day for the Clarity. This year the other family can't participate because their house was leveled in the Carr fire. This chart is filled with data from daily readings of our bi-directional electric meter. Until the fires started we were on track to save about $2,500 in house electricity and car gas this year.
