Their plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will be met in cities by other members of The Florida Electric Auto Association, one of the supporting organizations, with their own electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
The purpose of The Electric Vehicle Initiative is to educate the public about the benefits and possibilities of electric and hybrid/electric cars. The family will be meeting with interested individuals, one-on-one, to help them clarify the type of electric car which fits their family.
Also, information on converting a gas car to electric will be provided.
For years we have wanted to do something substantial to help the environment. Empowering people to take control of their transportation costs while taking a big chunk out of global warming is our desired contribution, says Fran Sullivan-Fahs, communications president for the Initiative.
Join the trip that this family is taking by visiting their blog. They will be blogging about the trip, their experiences and the people they meet on two blogs, one for Fran and her husband Ron, and another for Joy, their daughter, so she can share her unique thoughts on the trip as a teenager.
The Electric Vehicle Initiative provides contact information to help individuals and fleet owners meet their needs for total electric and plug-in hybrid electric transportation.
The Florida Electric Auto Association is a Florida-based not-for-profit organization that promotes the advancement and widespread adoption of Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles.
