This episode of Andrew McCreadie's Plugged In podcast features an interview with EV charging pioneer Kent Rathwell. Kent created and paid for a free and robust level 2 free network across Canada in 2012 that spanned Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It is called the Sun Country Highway. His goal was to charge at 100 km per hour and he accomplished that in many sections along the Trans-Canada route.
Since transportation is not the only way we earthlings contribute to the carbon pie, Kent has a new project about to launch. This will be for anyone interested in "plunking" their carbon back into the earth. Let's hope his carbon plunk idea catches on everywhere - and quickly.
