Electric vehicle tidbits and adventures in the Kootenays
BCIT Solar Canopy and DCFC
BCIT is hosting a pretty amazing pilot project that combines solar canopies, onsite energy storage, Level 2 and DCFC charging, and grid-tie all in one package! We stopped to see it and visit with Kelly Carmichael, one of the visionaries for the project.
Andrew is an environmental engineer by day, "kid activity/school volunteer" by evening, and EV advocate / blogger in his remaining spare time.
He is very passionate about the future of energy generation & usage.He prefers bikes to cars, but acknowledges that Canadian cities have been developed primarily with cars in mind, so if we're going to drive, let's make them all EVs!(But let's get EV buses and take those where possible first.)
