How FAST can you go?

To answer that question we are attending the 4th Annual REFUEL motor sport event this weekend hosted at the world famous Laguna Seca Raceway.

Drawing EV enthusiasts from wide and far the event will feature production Electric Vehicles from Tesla, BMW, Nissan, Zero Motor Cycles, conversions and more along with prototype high performance vehicles. Could be a few surprises including one or two Tesla Model S take to the track.

Enjoy this video from last year’s event and stay tuned for an update!

Submetering – Why delay progress?

In a joint letter opposing the extension filed today along with the Green Power Institute and Plug In America, SUM – PROJECT Green OnRamp requested that the 12 month extension to complete the submetering protocol be limited to only 6 months.

Our letter follows an unlikely group of interests that came together requesting the extension – Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, EVSP Coalition and Natural Resource Defense Council.

While we fully understand the technical challenges of the protocol our position is that technology is getting held back by lack of policy decisions.  Solid rules and policies with room to evolve will expedite innovation.

References to the NRG Settlement came at a time when this lively topic and disclosure of the proposed settlement details were under scrutiny.
