Hey Dave!Hi folks,
Well, I'm going to take the plunge! I've run the numbers and an EV makes all the sense in the world. I live 3 miles from work an EV will satisfy 95% of my driving needs.
I also have the advantage of working for a battery company and can get a really good price on deep cycle batteries. A lot of my co-workers are interested in the idea and can offer lots of advice and expertise.
I look forward to picking the impressive brains I've found around here and hope to have my EV rolling next spring!
My glider is a 1991 Nissan NX1600 for $250. I've already picked out the vanity plate - PBH2SO4. (I know, too nerdy)
Dave in Des Moines
I'm in Cedar Rapids, a noob also. Just getting my feet wet! I'm selling some assets and looking to build one myself, hopefully also get into a new career path. I've been teaching IT tech seminars, would like to develop my passion for RE and EV into skillz I can use to make a living, either seminars or helping design/build EV kits or whatever else in RE. Wonder how many Iowans are here?
