Go Zero Electric Car Chargers let you charge up at home with optional solar power. Professionally installed, you can also join their network for your own driveway or office driveway to be a charging station for others, and earn passive income. If you run a small business (like a hotel with a car park), you could earn an average £5000K income, from letting passers-by use your charging station, and you get full support every step of the way.
Electric cars simply work like your vacuum cleaner. You plug them in and charge them, then they go off driving around town, and you have to keep charging them up to work them again. They get energy from a battery, that converts to power by an electric motor, which drives the wheels. They are quieter, and people say once they get used to them, they prefer them (concerns about wildlife not hearing them are said to be not that much of a concern as once thought, because electric cars are really only ‘silent’ say moving slowly out a car park, the tyre noise at higher speeds will still make some kind of noise. Having said that, some makers are now installing alarms to alert pedestrians and animals, a good thing. And by removing oil, this helps to save more animals from spills and pollution.
Most of the big car makers now have electric cars, and the Tesla is the best-selling one. You can find many green car websites online if you’re a (now NOT a petrolhead!) and want to know all the specs.
We all hear that in a few years, we’ll all be driving electric vehicles. Of course what would be even better would be better town planning with walkable communities and good public transit. But until then, electric cars are undoubtedly better than petrol or diesel cars. It’s very expensive still to buy (any) car, let alone an electric one. An idea is to join your local car-sharing club (many offer hybrid electric vehicles) so you benefit from driving, without having to buy one!
