PODCAST114: Awesome Auto Shops Going Alternative

Where is the alternative fuel vehicle market headed? Forward!  And many of the leaders for this transformation are teachers, students, parents and educators working to find ways of training students in advanced science and mathematics. PODCASTClick Here

On this episode Mike and Alex delve into the type of schools that are exploring green curricula and the use of electronic transportation to inspire students to higher education.  With all the different ways of working to expand the use of AFVs, we’re getting behind education as a way forward.  Often the job is matching educators up with the curriculum, many who never knew it existed, other times schools self-fund their projects.

As we look at the various schools, we invite students and teachers to contact us about ideas to crowd fund your own AFV project.  Have your own AFV project that needs funding? Share your story on the School Stories section of our website, or come on our show!  Email us at support@electricautoshop.com.

Also we talk about recent news, with 9 out of 10 people saying they would use driver-less cars if they had a lower insurance rate.  AT&T has committed to purchasing over $500 Million in AFVs, including CNG vehicles.  Chevrolet and GMC introduce a new line of CNG trucks and vans, some with over 300-mile range (you thought range anxiety was only with EVs). Plus, the Renault-Nissan electric car venture gets a third partner in Mitsubishi. Also, news that tiny Guam is purchasing more EVs.  Sounds like an island paradise!
