Re: Solar/Electric Car

Yes, it is totally possible - several of our customers have teslas, and tesla power walls / solar on their houses.

Robert llewyelin Bowen does it in the uk, same set up. Hes on youtube - ' the fully charged show' - hes totally solar i believe, he reviews all sorts of electric vehicles.

Re: German Company Cars in Spain

I think the rules are different if its a company vehicle, as theres portugese campervans here for years too, that belong to a company, and they get stopped by traffico all the time

Quite likely @firsttango - there have been tourists visiting Spain for years before that, but I´m talking about the "mass tourism" and cheap Ryanair flights. you never really used to see that 20 years ago. Going on holiday was a once or twice a year event, now (pre-covid / brexit) you coul...
