Ann Arbor, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2013 -- The Home Buyer’s Agent of Ann Arbor is now offering a new service for local home buyers. Broker Jonathan Boyd is showing clients homes for sale with his Solar Powered Ford Fusion Titanium.

Boyd, one of a few Green Certified real estate agents in the Ann Arbor area, charges his car during the evenings with energy generated by his home's 10,000 Watt solar array during the day. He reports that the first 19 miles he drives each day he is propelled with the sun's stored electric energy. When he travels beyond the range of the charge the vehicle's gas engine takes over.

When discussing the choice of vehicle Boyd said "Most of my daily driving is short range and right in town. That makes this car a perfect match for my use.”

In speaking about Boyd's Green Certification and interest in technology, his wife Pam Boyd said “As far back as elementary school he was fascinated with solar cells and other electronic devices, and as a young adult before he was a buyer's real estate broker, Jon was an electrical engineer for 10 years. He even worked in power conversion so he is familiar with the technology and enjoys staying up-to-date with the latest advances in that field”

In 2010, Boyd oversaw the installation of a 10,000 watt grid tied solar roof on his family home. To date, it has supplied this home with more than enough electricity to function efficiently, so when Ford Motor Company debuted their plug-in hybrid cars earlier this year, it was an obvious choice for Boyd.
