Ford Plus SunPower Team up with Sierra Club Newest Partnering National Drive Green for Life Program

As you may know, the latest IPCC report called for a significant shift toward renewable energy by 2050, to curb emissions.

Recently, the Sierra Club, Ford and SunPower announced a new collaboration to encourage customers to go one step further by charging their plug-in hybrid or all-electric vehicles using solar power.
