Every day I read about how electric powered cars are coming–and soon! The New York Times says “a national electric car charging infrastructure” is in the works. “This consists of electricity charging spots with plug-in outlets all over the country.”
And Forbes magazine just had an article that said, “A future where drivers tell utility companies when and where to charge their electric vehicles and with what source of energy–wind, sun or coal, for instance–could be as close as two years away.”
But you don’t have to wait. You can actually start converting your gas-powered car into an electric-powered car today! This means your car will no longer use gas. You’ll install special batteries into your car and those alone will provide the power. It used to be very expensive to do such a conversion, but new electric car technology has made it easy and affordable for everyone.
How do you go about doing this? First you have to purchase an electric car conversion kit, or instruction manual. These are available on the internet for immediate download. They usually cost $35 – $50. Next you’ll need tools and parts. These manuals show you how to find free batteries and other parts. The total cost of the whole conversion could cost as little as $300 (not including the manual).
Then you follow the step-by-step directions. Your car should be able to go about 50 mph and travel 100 miles or so on a single charge. You “refuel” your new electric car by simply plugging it into an electric socket. Then you’re good to go for another 100 miles. You don’t ever have to pay for gas again! Plus, your car doesn’t emit any pollutant by-products, or create obnoxious noise.
The best part is, the state and federal government will actually pay you to drive an electric car. There are huge rebates available for electric powered cars. When you add everything together–the money saved on gas, the rebates–you really aren’t spending a dime for the conversion. In fact, you’re making money!
This is not only a fun project, but you’ll also learn all about renewable energy. Big batteries that can store electricity for transportation and wind and solar generation are the next big industry. These batteries are the key to clean-technology.
As the song goes, “the times they are-a-changing.” They sure are. As Detroit goes down the tubes, the writing on the wall is clear: the future is electric powered cars. It’s an awesome vision, and you can become part of it today!
