Imagine... quiet, greener streets and clean-powered vehicles! That healthier future is just around the corner to a curbside near you with BIG Green Island.
Starting in 2011, all the major car manufacturers are introducing electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, and Canadian communities are not ready to accommodate and encourage growth of green transportation.
BIG Green Island provides an innovative solution by making it easy for people switch to electric vehicles and take action on climate change and end our dirty addiction to BIG Oil and the Tar Sands. We build and manage innovative high-speed charging stations for electric vehicles and bikes/e-bikes for any site - rural, suburban or urban. We will create installations that are community and user-friendly, and will greatly reduce a community's carbon footprint, and increase livability. BIG Green Island stations can be mobile or permanent, depending on the need of the neighbourhood or community.
This pilot project will encourage growth in electric vehicle use and help the future arrive NOW. The charging stations will connect to larger, existing networks in North America, enabling drivers to go longer distances, and reducing range anxiety while greatly reducing our collective carbon footprint. These green transportation hubs will also accommodate ride-sharing and cooperative car sharing programs. Our renewable energy expertise allows for the hubs to run on solar, wind, micro-hydro power sources and use smart-grid innovations, feeding into the grid for a fully clean and renewable infrastructure.
The inexpensive use of used shipping containers allows for fast and efficient set-up in a broad range of space requirements. More permanent arrangements can also be arranged to suit residential, commercial or public requirements. Our electricians are fully qualified and certified to meet the federal, provincial, and local electrical guidelines for instillation and specialize in renewable energy instillations at home, for business and the community at large.
BIG Green Island thinks BIG and creates the BIG changes we want for our communities and the planet.
The Space Centre has invited the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Meetup to set up a booth in their lobby on March 20th as part of Sustainable Spring Break 2008. It's a great opportunity for you to meet some EV riders, and to learn about the joy of riding EVs.
Announcing a new monthly Meetup of The Vancouver Electric Vehicle Meetup!
In addition to the EV owners that count themselves among the ranks of The Vancouver Electric Vehicle Meetup, and who come out for the monthly Kilowatt Hour ride on the second Friday of each month, there are quite a few EV-curious folks wanting to connect with us. Now you can!
So inspired by my experience with my own electric scooter, I've decided to start The Vancouver Electric Vehicle Meetup: http://ev.meetup.com/1
Meet with other electric vehicle owners to share experiences, advice, and information. Talk shop, show off modifications, and trade equipment. Get purchasing advice, battery handling tips, and pointers on how to conduct your own repairs. Exchange information about routes, road safety, and EV style.
Most importantly, join us every second Friday of each month for the Kilowatt Hour; an electrified one-hour ride celebrating electric vehicles of all types and wheel counts!
