The Michigan Electric Vehicle Association MEAA is a chapter of the national Electric Auto Association EAA. The EAA has existed since the 1980's to support the electric automobile. We have the third largest membership of the EAA in the country. Our group is comprised engineers to hobbyists with an interest in electric vehicles who have come together to learn and share information. We are a non-profit that exists to help educate the public by creating places where people can come into contact with this technology and learn. We host the largest gathering of electric vehicles in the Midwest annually in June at Schoolcraft College. This event along with several other regional events focuses on getting the public in touch with owners and in the seats of electric powered vehicles from local dealers to help them navigate this change in the automotive business.
In addition, we assist local businesses and municipalities understand the implications, costs and procedures involved in installing public electric charging infrastructure and supporting private EVSE installations.
We are a non-profit that exists to help educate the public by creating places where people can come into contact with this technology and learn. People who belong to our group come from many different backgrounds and for reasons as varied as:
A need to improve the environment
A desire to shift our energy purchases from overseas to domestic electricity and reduce the military tensions in the world
To save money
or just the challenge of making something with your hands
If any of this interests you, please come to one our meetings and meet like minded people or sign up to get emails of upcoming events.
Several of our members participated in this PC Magazine article about restoring antique vehicles with electric parts.
