The Art Of Charging An EV In Frigid Cold
It’s clear that relatively new EV drivers — and maybe some more veteran drivers who haven’t paid enough attention — need a primer in cold weather use of their vehicles. EV drivers need to plan ahead in order to prevent a roadside mishap due to unexpected power loss and to avoid unnecessary delays and charging costs. Here is a good article to charging an EV in frigid cold.

New EV News!
VEVA Members, Jacques Courteau and Donovan Whistler,
participate in a design charette to evaluate the accessibility of EV charging stall designs
On September 12, 2023, the City of Vancouver and SPARC BC (Social Planning and Research Council of BC) tested mock-ups of accessible EV charging stall designs with equipment supplied by BC Hydro.
Jacques and Donovan have been documenting the accessibility of EV charging designs for a number of years and were invited to participate in the charette.
EV charging accessibility is a core interest for VEVA and a special concern for the VEVA Government Relations Committee. As EV charging infrastructure deployment picks up pace, now is a critical time for us to ensure that the roll-out supports accessibility for all. Accessibility benefits everybody, but more particularly persons like Jacques Courteau, Donovan Whistler, Bill Hamilton and other VEVA members who cannot otherwise charge their cars. What we build now will shape the future of EV charging.
The goal of universal, accessible EV charging design is to ensure that all British Columbians now, and in the future, will be able to own and operate EVs and participate in the environmental benefits that result.
Why Buy an Electric Vehicle?
When you drive electric, it feels like you are driving the future.
That's because you are.
