Hello, folks. The following event will take place in San Luis Obispo (Central Coast), CA. It is free and open to all interested parties; registration is required.

* Could your car be converted to run on batteries instead of gas?
* Would it provide the speed and range you need?
* How hard is it to convert?
* What does it cost to convert and operate an electric car?

These questions and others will be answered during a one-day workshop held on Saturday, October 6th from 10am to 6pm on the Cal Poly campus. The exact location will be posted here in early September.

The early portion of the talk will cover general information about conversions - cost, performance, environmental issues, etc. Then speaker Mike Brown of Electro Automotive will get into the nuts and bolts, from choosing a suitable chassis, stripping it, installing the components and wiring, to charging, maintenance, and driving techniques. A factory electric Toyota RAV4 and a converted Fiat X1/9 will be on hand as demo vehicles. This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. For more info or to register, visit www.c-5.org or call Alex at (805) 781-4654.
