Carolyn presents on EV panel, Wednesday July 28th

Sustainable San Rafael presents:

Achieving Zero Emission Transportation:
Climate Cool Options for Your Next Car (or Bike)

The Marin Youth Center
Map to 1115 Third Street, San Rafael
7pm, Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Presentations:

Why Electric Vehicles Make Sense and What You Can Buy this Year
Dale Miller (SF Electric Vehicle Association)

Mainstreaming EVs: The Nissan ‘Leaf’
Ron Coury (Northbay Nissan)

Converting Your Current Hybrid to Plug-In
Carolyn Coquillette (Luscious Garage)

Re-thinking Your Transportation Needs with an Electric Bike
Spokey Godfrey (The Bicycle Works, San Anselmo)

Learn why Electric Vehicles—from bikes to roadsters—are key to transitioning off carbon and achieving Marin’s and San Rafael’s Climate Change Action Plan objectives. Plugging your EV into rooftop solar panels or Marin Clean Energy’s deep green electricity gets you most of the way towards the 10/10 Goals that scientists say we must meet to reverse climate change—reducing our carbon footprints by 10% for each of the next 10 years. (Not to mention that EVs are fun and affordable, and you’ll never pump another gallon of gas from BP or other oil companies.)

Donations appreciated, but no one turned away for lack of funds.
Program at 7:00 pm. Gather at 6:30 for cookies and popcorn.

1115 Third Street, San Rafael

Farewell Julia!

Luscious Garage is blessed by an extended community of supporters, local and beyond.  My sincere thanks to Julia Langholt, budding graduate of my alma mater Hawken School, back in Cleveland OH, for her dedicated service as volunteer/intern.  Today she completed her “senior project” exploring small business, green business, hybrid technology, and California culture, to influence her pursuit of mechanical engineering at Ohio State University.  For more on Julia’s experience, check out her blog:

Carolyn speaks at Lincoln High School EV Club

Many thanks to the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association for their ongoing mentorship at Lincoln High School this past year.  Five seniors have refurbished three electric scooters during after-school hours with help from Mark Albers, Secretary of the SFEVA, and other members; the program is lead by Lincoln photography teacher Jack Alter.  I was asked to present on EV battery technology and my experience with both lead acid and nickel metal hydride chemistries in EV applications.  Topics also included hybrid and plug-in hybrid architecture to expand students’ thinking on how to design different EV platforms. 

The afternoon ended with a test drive of their finished Vego scooters (they work great!) and a demo of LG’s plug-in Prius.
