First off is a trip over to Brian Matheny’s Solar House project. Brian lives in New England and this is his second energy efficient home project (that I’m aware of). He has also converted a few vehicles over the years, including a few electric lawnmowers. Lots of great information.
Mr. Chaos (going by his email address) sends along a link to the latitude EV project.
If you are looking for a lightweight design for your EV then Darin may have come across the concept EV kit car of your dreams. It’s kind of like a recumbent electric bike with a great windscreen! I particularly enjoyed his energy efficiency comparison page: the power to do one load of dishes will run his vehicle 25 miles.
It may be spam or it may be gold: in an email via the contact form comes a message from Mr. Chang at the Advanced Battery Factory in Guang Dong, China advertising their growing collection of LiPoly batteries.
