Last week while I was over at UC Berkeley, I had the pleasure to meet Marc Geller of Plug In America and Dale Miller, President of the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association, two incredibly dedicated individuals to the EV movement.
Here's a little background about Plug In America and SF EVA...
Plug In America is a coalition of RAV4-EV drivers, former lessees of Honda EV+, GM EV1, Ford Ranger and Ford Th!nk City electric cars, and advocates of clean air and energy independence. Prior to 2008, we functioned as a loose network of individuals organized around websites of various names (like dontcrush.com and saveEV1.com) and then coalesced as a chapter of the Electric Auto Association. On January 2, 2008 Plug In America became a separate California Non-Profit Corporation. On August 18, 2008, we received our determination from the IRS, and we became an official 501(c)(3) public charity!
The SFEVA is an educational, support and advocacy group for the promotion of electric vehicles. Electric cars, trucks, scooters, and bikes provide emission-free personal transportation using electricity, not fossil fuels.
In our first, two interviewee interview, what's on your mind about electric vehicles? What about advocacy? Policy? How you can get involved? Ask away!
Things to remember:

We'll send the best questions over to Marc and Dale and post their answers ASAP.
