December 7th, 2020 by  

Below were the top 20 articles published on CleanTechnica in November and then the top 20 articles published on CleanTechnica in the past week. Further down, below those, are 10 exclusive, completely original CleanTechnica stories that I especially enjoyed and would hope people found valuable. (If you did, you know what to do.)

Top Stories in November

As a quick summary, before we get to these top stories, here’s a quick summary: people were really interested in the 2021 Tesla Model 3 and the China-made Model 3 Standard Range Plus with LFP batteries, and the old narrative of legacy auto vs. Tesla was as popular as ever.
