Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the future. Fossil fuels are a finite energy source and will eventually run out. EVs can be powered by solar, wind, hydro-power and even oil or coal. EVs are non-polluting and efficient. Batteries are getting better each year. Roland Penttila covers how EVs work, talks about his own Tesla, and shows some new calculations to consider in owning one.

Roland Penttila is a retired civil engineer who added amateur historian to his other hobbies and is now fully engaged in learning more and more about the city and state he adopted in 1998. His new obsession is his 2020 Tesla Model Y.
