Nissan Leaf 7-1-4

Road Trip! Can our Nissan Leaf all-electric car
make it from Santa Barbara to San Simeon ?
Will it work on a Tesla charge station? Click above and see!

I will say there is a saving going solar on your home.  We went from a $400 per month electric bill to SCE to $190 per month to SolarCity to lease purchase our solar over the next 20 years with no money out-of-pocket.  Now we are only $0.79 per month to SCE.  There is a saving driving an electric car even if you do not have solar on your home, it is still less than paying for gas.  What really surprised me was the combination of solar on our home and driving our all-electric Leaf.  We found that driving the Leaf around town about 35 miles a day and charging at home with our solar only raised our electric solar bill by about $0.50 per month.  I ask my SolarCity rep if I was missing something because it didn’t make any sense to me.  He said yes, you are missing something, the SCE transmission charges which are 70% of everyone’s bill.  He said once you start producing your own energy from solar at home, and not paying those transmission charges, you now see how little power you really need or use.

My recommendation for now, do not buy an electric car, lease one.  Especially if you can write it off on your business.  We are still in the VHS vs Beta phase of battery technology and 300 miles of range and more will be here soon, as in the next three years!  Here is another option for range anxiety.  We have recently noticed a growing number of people who don’t care what kind of car they have.  If they are going on a long trip the cost of renting is so low they would rather rent a car for a long trip then put all the miles on their car also risking accidents and damage to their car.  My last trip to Las Vegas was about $15 per day plus gas 2 tanks one there and one back for a total of about $200 from Santa Barbara round trip.  Eventually electric cars will be less expensive to rent than gas because there is almost no maintenance.  The future of transportation looks good and you might not even want or need an electric car that goes more than 100 miles.  We don’t.  We will just rent one.

All this really made me see how we have all been ripped off for that last 100 years to pay the price for GAS.  As you can see in 2014 we are still fighting and killing people around the world so we can keep our price of gas down.  I’ll pass on that and you should too!  I love this country and our military personnel that help defend it.  Unfortunately we have all been suckered into putting money in someone else’s pocket, not ours.  We really need to wake up and help our self and the rest of the world!  It’s time to KICK GAS and help others do the same.

Warren Buffet and Solar?


Warren Buffett – my new best buddy!  I will have to admit I had doubts when I heard Warren Buffett was investing big bucks in the Chinese BYD electric vehicles.  Why wasn’t he investing in America like into Tesla or others here at home?  When I came across this video of Topaz right here in San Luis Obispo CA it changed my mind.  Warren Buffett through BHE has enough money to spread it around the world and do us all a favor.  See why Why Warren Buffett Is Betting $30 Billion on Solar and Wind.  Go for Warren Buffett.  You Da Man!

Off Grid

Is living off the Grid now a crime?


There may be a number of reasons government agencies are targeting homeowners property rights.  Forcing you to connect to the Power Grid may be just another way of making us pay for something we don’t want and don’t need.  Let all public servants know, if they want our vote, don’t enslave us!  We have the right, to not be on the Power Grid!

National Drive Electric Week

Nationwide Celebration to Heighten Awareness


Now this is something to Celebrate !  We will show up  in Goleta CA to share our Nissan Leaf and answer questions.  What do we love about it?  The smooth quiet ride, fast acceleration, never stopping at gas stations again ever, and of course going home and plugging in.  It’s like saying, Electric Car, say hello to my Solar!  Drink up, it’s FREE!



I am always amazed of the things I can find clicking through the Personal Power Project website.  From the Power of our Word and the Family Story page there is a link to and from there I found the Overview.  This is an amazing story told by people who have seen our planet Earth from space and the profound affect it had on them which they are now calling the Overview.

The Personal Power Project is all about Personal Power.  There is an organization on the planet that is taking this Personal Power all the way into the Future.  Infinity and Beyond!  My first thought was, we went to the moon 40 years ago and still haven’t managed to get back there.  These scientists actually think we will be immortal in the next 40 years!?!

There are a few differences from the past 40 years.  We have a lot more people on the planet now and the joint effort on this one is probably already larger than going to the moon.  We also have way more computing power and that computing power is exponential as time moves forward.  That means it just might happen in 40 years.  One thing is for sure.  Even if it takes 100 years, we are heading there and there is no stopping it.  I must say the lasik eye surgery I got a few years back was the best gift I ever gave myself.

You might not want to live an extra few hundred years, thousand years, or be immortal.  Here is something to think about.  If you had a choice to live the life you have now or go back and live like a caveman which would you choose.  Probably 100% of us would choose to live the life we have now.  Imagine life 100 years from now.  Ask them if they would like to live that life or go back 100 years and live this life.  We already program our minds all the time.  If we succeed in programming our minds in the next 100 years to express a higher level of love and harmony,  our current life might look like the caveman days.  You might be thinking, we have had thousands of years and our level of love and harmony hasn’t changed that much.  Well, that is where technology might help speed up our evolution.  We shall see. Fasten your seat belts.  This ride will continue speeding up!  Learn how to enjoy it!

Go Solar

Guess who is finally going Solar !!!

There is a good reason I, Dan Ringwald at
National Home Buyers, LLC,
went with Solar City.  Click on the picture and
you will see.  If you are still not sure get back to
me for the details on the not so obvious secret
why I will not be spending $100,000 on my SCE
electric bill in the next 20 years and why a few of
these reasons and opportunities may not last!
and if you click on the picture above you can see
who is next!  Get back to me and find out why I
went with Solar City.

Elon Musk Chat

Probably the number one person on the planet today for expanding personal power.  A one hour chat with Elon on Space X, Tesla, Solar City, and more.  Very interesting information from a top innovator of our time.
