USA: EAASV monthly meeting Saturday October 19

Hi,

Yes, we are having a meeting this Saturday.

This is a joint meeting with the SF BayLeafs at HP Palo Alto at 10am to noon.

The guest speaker will be Jeremy Whaling, a long-time BayLEAFs member and supporter. Jeremy is a real-time scheduler at the California ISO, monitoring electricity imports into California’s electrical grid. He will give a presentation about the evolution of the power grid, and how the renewables share is rising rapidly. One of his predictions is that thanks to the growth of solar, we might see noon off-peak rates in the not-too-distant future.

Jeremy has been driving a LEAF since July 2012, and is active in the modification scene. He recently installed a second on-board charger from Brusa to reduce the charging time in half. Instead of seven hours, it only takes about three hours from turtle to a full charge. This project has garnered a lot of attention and is documented online. As Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield recently reported, the upgrade project has prompted the manufacturer of the charger to continue supplying it, and revise its pricing.

As a bonus, any EAASV member that attends the meeting will get a free 2013 EV Rally T-shirt until the supply runs out.

Not a member, just join at the meeting and take home a souvenir T-shirt.

Thanks for your support,
Tom
