Electric taxi driver to charge car with solar panels

I chose to go electric due to the increasing fuel costs and wanted to play my part in reducing carbon emissions.

Given the mileage I cover as a taxi driver, it was becoming increasingly expensive to fill up at the pumps.

My vehicle is charged using solar panels installed at my house, so as well as saving money, I am also doing my bit for the environment!

I would encourage other taxi drivers to go electric.

– Electric taxi owner, George Price
