Winter 2015

Coal River Valley Sustainable Living Group

There are now over 100 electric vehicles on the road in Tasmania.  Consequently the Australian Electric Vehicle Association has formed a State Chapter which will be holding its launch at the State Theatre on Saturday 15th August starting at 10 am.  There will be short films, an expert panel presentation and a Q&A session including local owners of electric vehicles to answer your questions. There will also be a range of electric vehicles on display including a Tesslar, Mitsubishi PHEV Outlander 4WD,  Nissan Leaf etc. 
Tasmania’s petroleum is now imported directly from south east Asia.  Electricity represents a locally produced, sustainable, secure transport-energy supply.  Design has commenced regarding installation of an EV charging network in Tasmania.  What you spend stays here.

There will be no August meeting. The next meeting for our group is on Wednesday 9th September  at 7 pm at the Community Meeting Room, 22 Torrens Street, Richmond.  Prospective members are very welcome to attend.  If you would like to be involved with the Richmond Community Food Garden, contact  Tara on 0431966065.
