Learn about electric cars

The American River Conservancy is presenting a program on “Revenge of the Electric Car: Good for the planet, you and your Wallet” on Thursday, Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Electric vehicles are fun to drive, incredibly cheap to maintain and run, emit zero emissions, and keep United State citizens from needing so much foreign oil.

Come check out one of these competitively priced win-win vehicles — the Nissan Leaf — with Alice Cantelow, and hear of her local experience driving it as her primary car.

This will be a great chance to ask practical questions.

The inspiring film “Revenge of the Electric Car” will then take you behind closed doors at Nissan, General Motors and Tesla Motors to watch the development of these amazing cars.

To sign up and to get the meeting location in the Coloma area call 530-621-1224.

A suggested donation of $5 for conservancy members and $10 for non-members is requested.

    I'm curious if anyone can tabulate for me how much it would cost (at PG&E electric rates) to drive a Leaf 5 days a week, 54 miles per day, for a month.

    Mr. Martin, I have no idea. But I've often wondered with PG&E rates if an electric car would make sense. Wonder if PG&E has the highest electric rates in the nation.
