Why is this Blue Car Really Green?

It’s St. Patrick’s Day and what Green item are we looking for at the end of the rainbow?  Why of course, it’s a shiny new leaf.  No.  Not a clover leaf, but a Nissan Leaf.  Two years ago we installed a 7.1 kilowatt photovoltaic solar panel system on our roof here in Lake Forest so we could look forward to receiving one of the first all electric cars and power it from the sun.   Well, the boat from Japan unloaded our new car right before the tsunami.  As we speak, we are waiting for the call from the dealer to tell us that we can come pick up our St. Patrick’s Day Green Vehicle.  Actually, the color is white, but we will sure be saving a lot of Green on it when we plug it into our solar powered house instead of a pump at the gas station!
