Feel Good Green.

The Instapundit noted the following article about a Tennessee man who converted his 1994 Chevy S-10 to electric power for a mere $12,000. The two dozen batteries that are used will need to be replaced in three years, at a cost of about $3000. His gasoline bill was about $5000 a year, so he breaks even in year four. He could have bought a new S-10 for less, with better gasoline fuel economy. Yes, we're being a green humbug, but this report has as much signficance to practical garage-based energy solutions as a that about a waterskiing squirrel.
