Having never cared much about the cars I drive, six months of Model S ownership has made an impression. It has finally prompted me to make other changes long over due with respect to energy use around the house. My point is there is more than solar panels ... Less exciting options like insulation and air sealing, lighting, (getting rid of the hot tub) that can make a big dent. It shocked me that the hot tub actually used more kwH than the 2,000 miles per month in the Tesla (let alone chemicals) ! So I've now called the insulation contractor, and am replacing half the lights with LEDs. Maybe there is larger story and EV's can partner with home energy experts (credible and unbiased ones). I know others feel strongly about PV panels on homes. Personally, I believe the conservation alternatives are getting shorted in the picture, and need a louder voice. They are the "introverts" in the hype and marketing. I would like to see a renewal and stronger push for the easier things. It all goes together.
