Why can't we generate the power to run our electric cars?

What if:

Solar panels on the roof of the garage, generated the power that the car plugged into?

and solar panels in our yards/on roofs generated the power for each house?


It seems so simple, and do-able..

I know that solar has been "too expensive", but if we are truly in crisis mode, isn't it still cheaper to mass-produce and install these, than to waste all our money on wars?

Of course, this cuts out the poor power companies who have been bleeding us dry for decades..

Our whole energy crisis, seems (to me) to be more about preserving the monopolies and price gouging ways of the power/fuel industries, than about real energy services to people..
