Guest Speaker: Paul Rapoport, a university professor, has driven an EV for more than five years and been a member of the EV Society for almost as long. He’s interested in getting people into EVs, believing that once they’re in, they’ll want to stay in!
He will demonstrate a novel way of using cost of ownership to show how EVs are cheaper to drive than gasoline vehicles. Sometimes, he says, the results are surprising.
