EV (Electric Vehicle) Real-Life Resources
Interested in learning more about EV’s and how they work from a real-life perspective? We have a few resources for you!
Amanda Groethe and Whitney Ditlevson from Stearns Electric Association in Central Minnesota embarked on a cross-country expedition to gain hands-on experience with an all-electric Tesla S. Their destination was 1,200 miles away at Touchstone Energy’s Drive to CONNECT EVent. They kept a driving log, which they documented on a blog, to provide electric vehicle education and to share their experience along the way!
Check out their blog at: https://roadtriprecharged.com. They can be found on Facebook and Instagram at: roadtriprecharged. They also provided a half-hour presentation at MREA’s Energy Issues Summit. This presentation is available on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/Hcuew0Nwp9E.
Also leading the charge in EV education is Minnkota Power Cooperative. Kaylee Cusack of Minnkota Power hit the road in an all-electric 2018 Chevy Bolt, and took a tour of Minnkota coops in North Dakota and Minnesota. She logged her experience as well.
