Solar is already outstripping EV sales. The annual growth in solar currently exceeds the growth in EV's and I cannot imagine any reason why this would not continue. Solar is a WINNER no matter how one looks at it. There is no downside. EV's on the other hand are not for every purpose nor for every application. SO most people can invest in solar, but not everyone can get maximum benefit from an EV. Of course LOTS of folks cannot invest in solar (they have too much shade) but they can sign up for solar from their power company. Other restricitons on solar (do not own the home) similarly affect the purchase of EV's (no place to plug in). SO I think those negative factors cancel.
