March Presentation – What you Need to Know About Electric Cars
DATE: March 8, 2023 (Wed) 7 PM “What You Need to Know About Electric Cars” LOCATION: Peter White Library, George Shiras Room, 3rd Floor PRESENTER: Steve Waller, naturalist and retired NMU teacher Steve Waller is a retired technical and environmental educator and writes for local publications. He has taught wind and solar energy classes at Northern Michigan University. For over twenty years his “Reading the Woods” class for the DNR’s BOW program has introduced the public to the workings and intricacies of the U.P. forests. Steve also has the highest iNaturalist.com species count for Marquette County, 1,026 species, found, photographed and identified entirely on his family’s 80 acre forest parcel called the Waller Research Area. Are you charged up about 100% electric vehicles (EVs)? Are they practical and safe? Myths, rumors, and concerns abound. People are understandably cautious about new technology, but the time for EVs has come. This program compares twelve popular EVs to each other, to three popular gasoline vehicles, and compares life with EVs to the ICE age (age of internal combustion engines). We will clarify the advantages, disadvantages, purchase prices, electricity (fuel) cost, range, charging, safety, and practicality of owning an EV. Join us and decide if an EV is the right vehicle for you. A Tesla model Y will be available on site for you to inspect after the program.
