Meet Jim Stack, a member of the Electric Vehicle Stakeholder Project and a proud owner of a Nissan LEAF:
“We drive our 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF almost everyday. My wife drives to work 12 miles each way, takes all her co-workers to lunch and never has to worry, since we have a 100-mile range. In fact, we just charge to 80 percent to increase battery life and still have miles to spare. A few times we have gone over 100 miles in a day on one charge!
We first got the car on March 17, 2011 (St Patrick’s day), and haven’t had to buy a drop of gas or oil since. We still love to ride our bicycles on short trips and also carpool whenever we can. It pays to be green.
We’ve also had a GRID-Tied Solar home since 2001. With our 4 Kw system and efficient home, we can power our house, car and still help the power utilitity with clean energy during peak hours.”
