Thanks for being a paid subscriber! As a bonus, you're receiving a monthly email where I share one climate resource and ways you may be able to use it. For April, I've developed my own mini-guide for the care and feeding (electricity) of your first EV.
EVs are far past the point of being only for early-adopters. As I've written before, automakers are staking their companies on electric cars and trucks being fully mainstreamed. But there's shockingly little help at the point of sale for new EV owners to deal with the short-but-notable learning curve of powering your car with electricity. Somebody taught you how to pump gas, right?
Electric vehicles are an incomplete solution to greenhouse gas emissions, and there’s still tough conversations that need to happen about the resource extraction and recycling plans for car batteries.
