Got solar? Ready to consider an electric vehicle? Or … are you thinking about powering your fabulous EV with the sun?

Join us for a spring afternoon visiting neighbors around Davis who have both! Get your questions answered and come away with your own plan for Driving on Sunshine!


The Cool Davis Double Up on Solar campaign team is partnering with working group Davis Electric Vehicle Association (DEVA) to give residents a peek at leading edge homes in our community. Calculate last year’s taxes early so you have time for the future!

  • Meet local solar and electric vehicle experts at various homes along the route
  • Homeowners will be on hand to tell their stories and help you write your own chapter. Some have been driving on sunshine for years; others are just getting started.
  • Learn about energy and transportation tech solutions that save you money and jump start your family legacy

Now is your opportunity to make a plan and take advantage of solar and EV tax credits and rebates still in place. You could be driving on sunshine, too!


WHEN: Sunday, April 15, 1pm to 4pm

WHAT: Davis homes featuring both rooftop solar and electric vehicles, experts and homeowners on-hand

Participants will receive a tour map as part of signing up

Presented by Cool Davis and the City of Davis.

Also partnering on this event: SacEV, DEVA, Solar Roof Dynamics, Aztec Solar, RepowerYolo, and the Yolo Solano Air Quality Management District
