Fast Chargers

Fast chargers can refill EV batteries in 30 minutes, greatly reducing range anxiety and providing gateway to other metropolitan areas. Our goal is to encourage and support their rollout.  Contact Eugen Dunlap, (530) 668 8455 or Tim Hastrup (916) 791-1902 for more information.

SacEV is pleased to announce one of our major initiatives this year will be to create an "Electric Avenue" here in Sacramento. What is "Electric Avenue"? It's a cluster of curbside charge stations in public view close to many "shopportunities". Currently the only "Electric Avenue" in the country is in Portland. Read the Forbes article on Portland's Electric Avenue for more information.
 
To get involved, contact Lloyd Levine at 916 359-9356 or lloyd at filamentstrategies dot com.
 

Workplace Charging

Charging stations can managed by the ChargePoint Network to support GFleet and Employee-Owned EVs
We are just starting an initiative with our partners to improve workplace charging.  We'll address this through events, business benefits, solution summaries.   Not only is the demand there from employees, but there are several state and national efforts to address this.
 
Contact Guy Hall at 916 717-9158 or President at Sac EV dot org if you are interested in participating.

California Auto Museum - EV Docent

posted Dec 18, 2011, 10:28 PM by Guy Hall   [ updated Mar 5, 2013, 8:48 AM ]

The California Auto Museum has received funding for a complete makeover that will bring it to a level similar to, or surpasing the really cool new Crocker museum. As part of this effort, SacEV will try to ensure that EV's play a much more significant role, both inside the museum with history and education, outside the museum for an EV friendly visitors infrastructure and its out reach educational support.
Neil Lubin, a docent and SacEV member, bridges the traditional car buff and EV enthusiast. He is the critical link between the California Auto Museum and our organization and EV's. He's key to geting EV thinking in front of traditional California Auto Museum staff, docents, and board, many of whom are old school auto guys.
 
The California Auto Museum (CAM) has several EVs, but is lacking real expertise in the field.  As such, they are seeking someone that can periodically or on call come down and talk to interested groups on EV's and their history.   They would provide some training on talking to groups at that museum.
 
Anyone interested, please contact Guy Hall at 916 717-9158.
