My house is on a renewable power program, where I get all my electricity over the power lines, but coming from bio-gas, wind turbines, and other renewable energy sources.
Doing a calculation on energy consumption, comparing gasoline and electricity, the car gets the equivelent of about 130 miles per gallon
This has been a fun project to work on and I have learned tons doing it. Keep in mind that I have NO background in electronics or engineering. All I did was go to the library, start talking to people, and learn what I could!
If I can do this, so can you!
So how about it? Are you building an electric car or have any other DIY Green Tech? Let me know!
You can stop by 300MPG.org to see the videos that my friends and I are making to teach you, step by step, how to build your own electric car!
I found that there was a lack of instructional videos in the world of electric cars. I bought a couple, and they all were TERRIBLE! So, I made my own! Stop by 300MPG.org to check it out!
Take care, and keep it green.
PS: if you enjoy the videos, please give them a high rating, this helps me to be able to keep making them!
