"$2,000 is very low. $7,000 is adequate. Somewhere in-between if you can come up with some used parts, or cheap batteries. I don't know much about the Saturn. Does it have much room for batteries? What is the weight rating?"

"Hi Drew. I'm in the process of a conversion, and would be interested in "mutual help" to get the momentum going on both projects. Do you have a budget? I can certainly help with the design aspects."

""if an alternative location is not found" If those with EVs have enough range to get all the way to the Fulford Valley :-) then we could meet at EcoReality. That's the only way I'm likely to attend a meeting. :-)"

would love to participate in a brazing and welding workshop,spent seven seasons with triple 8 treeplanting around Williston lake and Grande Prairie,if we made some sturdy weeding tools we might enlist some volunteer labor to dig up ivy and nasty invasive plants and replace with native berries and other useful seedlings

Hi Jan,

I will see what I can do,

Hello Jan,

Welcome to the electric vehicle group.  You asked if there were people interested in 'roll your own' electric vehicles out there and the answer is yes.  We have a number of people interested in doing conversions of ICE vehicles to electric and two or three have already done so.  We have occasional meetings and a sometimes newsletter that is sent around to those interested.  If you would like to get on the e-mailing list for information and notice of upcoming meetings, just let me know'  We are planning another meeting, focusing on conversions in early March.  Date to be announced.

Regards

 

Jon Healey

Cheers
