Chicago Car Sharing Program I-GO Launches Largest Solar-Powered EV Project in US: I-GO Car Sharing, a nonprofit

The last time I owned a car was over 7 years ago. The first city I lived in without a car was Chapel Hill, NC. While I didn’t really feel like a needed a car that often there, there were times when one was really useful. I used Zipcar, another car sharing company, and have loved the concept ever since. Many places in the U.S. are built with the car in mind (and sometimes ONLY the car in mind), but it’s also completely easy to get around without a car MOST of the time in many places (and healthier, cheaper, and more fun, I might add). Car sharing helps to fill that very little part of the time when a car is still helpful. And if it’s offering solar-powered EVs, all the better!
