How solar power and electric cars could make suburban living awesome again

Personally-owned (or rented) solar panels, plus electric vehicles... I think this will be a winning formula going forward (not for everyone, of course; we don't all live in sunny areas). It would avoid a current glaring problem with electric vehicles: electricity generation is still heavily based on burning coal. The biggest obstacle to this move? Obstinate electricity companies that are afraid of solar and wind, and currently fighting interested citizens in court and in several states' legislatures.
