The 5th annual Green Home and Energy show was held tonight in Nelson, BC, and I was happy to be there for the 4th year running to share my knowledge of EVs with our local residents. This year was the biggest yet, with 3 Leafs, 2 Bolts, and a Tesla Model S on display. Thanks to my fellow EV enthusiasts for coming out to talk to people and show them your cars 🙂
My presentation this year (download it here) had a short bit on general info about EVs, but I changed the focus this year to the 2nd generation of EVs that are starting to hit the road, along with what various regional and inter-BC trips would be enabled with the expanding DC Fast Charging network (see acceleratekootenays.ca)
As always, if you have any questions I am happy to answer them – get in touch with me through the “Contact” page.
I participated in the Nelson EcoSave Green Energy & Home Show again this year as an Electric Vehicle (EV) ambassador. I also gave a short 5 minute talk and 3 minute Q&A afterwards. Many people were there to look at the EVs; Murray took a number of people for a ride in his LEAF, and Dave in a Tesla Model S also came down from Rossland. I also brought our electrified Edgerunner cargo bike. Lots of interested people with many many question!
This post contains the presentation I gave, along with a number of “infographics” that I prepared and left on a display table for the public to view while at the Home Show. Click on any of the files/images below to download or to view as a larger image.

As mentioned in my last post, I was invited to attend the 2nd annual Nelson Green Home and Energy Show on October 15th. I had a great time at the show and really enjoyed answering the different questions that people had and showing them the Leaf in person.
Some typical questions, in no particular order:
- how much did your car cost?
- how far can you drive on one charge?
- how do you charge the car?
- how did you get it to Nelson?
