Go! Electric! A better future!
1.Gradually Phrasing out ICE vehicles
Change the laws to request auto makers to produce EV for every car models, so consumer can have other choices.
With the high Gas price, gradually 50% ICE will be replaced by Electric Vehicles which is only 1/5 or 1/6 the cost of gasoline.
In the future, when Fuel Cell Hydrogen is ready then can replace the rest of ICE. Put the pollutant ICE into retirements.

B. Israel is set to promote
the use of electric cars - Steven Erlanger
Israel has two million cars
on the road, and about 10 percent are replaced each year. They use
1) Parking meter-like plugs on city streets or service stations
2) Battery Swapping at stations
3) Charge up at night when driver goes to sleep
2.Electricity shortages only occurs during peak hours(2-6PM), EV
drivers can avoid peak hours and charge overnight.
Because of the power production structure, they could not reduce power generation at night time. So the overrun power
has to be shun to the ground. While we have oil shortage, we can put this idled capacity into good use to replace the
reliance on foreign oil.
e.g. In California, our installed capacity is 60,000 megawatts and off-peak unused capacity is about 30,000 megawatts for
18 hours, Full article: http://baltimorechronicle.com/2005/083005Korthof.html
3.Consumers Alert on Power Plants
Every month when you receive your utility bill, there will be a breakdown how your power companies purchase their power.
Take a note and supervise them to buy more from renewable power sources. For example, in the case of CA vs TX!
California gets 25% from clean energy source while Texas is only 1%, check out your own states or nations. Urge your
power providers to diversify their power purchases, ultimately 100% from renewable clean power generation.
4.For day time charging, give Solar Carports power licenses to sell clean PV electricity just like other types of fuels.
We will need a company to provide and maintain P.O.S. Electric vending machines or electric pumps in front of each parking
space. Each unit with outlets for 12V/48V/72VDC, 110V/220VAC and can be paid by credit cards or cash.
EV drivers can charge up at these locations. The peak hours for power shortages happened to be the same time for PV to
have peak power generation. These output of PV systems can provide needed power during the shortage. These solar
carports can be in shopping malls, city halls, libraries, museums, parks or schools.
5. Encouraging Solar Carports to be built at all businesses to sell
power to their customers. Improve power chargers to
5-30 minutes charge up, so while you have a meal or shopping and your EVs will be charging up at the parking lots.
These businesses also need power licenses just like liquor licenses, class C or D for small business. While the mega power
companies can have Class A license.
6. MAGLEV FREEWAY - This transportation takes 30% less energy to operate than conventional trains. It's quiet and fast. Magnetic waves will not affect the environment and it's cheaper to build. If we could build them on free way to transport EVs
from exit to exit, we only need to drive when we get off the freeways. Because city driving will be shorter distance, then smaller
battery pack is needed for EV. Hand free driving on the freeways, drivers could be free to make phone calls, read or even
take a nap. Good bye to the tiresome long distance driving. Make the freeway a mass transit system.
Car pool lane for longer
distance travelers, only allow exit at major cities. The speed can reach
up to 300 Mile per hours in the
deserts or interstates remote area. Another lane for exit to exit but at a lower speed. All exits from this transportation will be
elevator loading zone, slow down at the zone to lower or elevate to below or upper chamber. Rotate the chamber by 90 degree
to move to the lower speed lane or the driver can switch to manual drive mode and leave the freeway! Other lanes can still be
reserved for conventional vehicles that they do not wish to pay for the MAGLEV pilot drive!

same infrastructure but much lower operational and maintenance cost. If
the California Hi Speed bureau can consider MAGLEV over
high speed train which high friction still cost a lot in the long run. Hope they can be wise and build the first MAG-LEV system in the US.
7. Future PV system can be transparent, build a retractable glass dome over the freeways. Collecting Sun's energy to power
the Maglev systems, that is our free renewable energy. And the glass dome also prevent rain or snow, safer for the freeway's
traffic. Because all the transportation will be monitored by computers, so shall reduce congestion. Drivers only need to buy
tickers while getting on freeways!
by University of Toronto, painting the vehicles with Solar Paints to keep on
vehicle's battery pack while driving, parking is another finest solution. Additional to increase chargers at all convenient locations.
9. Why we must have FUEL to move the cars, let the roads take your cars. Free drivers from mundane driving and use the free,
clean and abundant solar energy to power our cars.
Pure electric vehicles, with 75-90 Maximum speed per hour and 180-250 Miles per charge capacity!
With the new Thin Film Li-Po battery, 400-500 miles per charge is possible!
Read estimated range, Check EV Performance
California, BEV can get the HOV stickers once you have had the car certified
by CARB. Have to watch out for
not exceeding the maximum gross vehicle weight for the vehicle. If the conversion exceeded the gross vehicle
weight then you have to go back and get DOT certification on the vehicle. You can still use the original VIN of the
Donor vehicle for registration and insurance! New BEV will have new Li-Iron Battery pack and it should run 180
miles per charge and maximum 70-80 MPH, depends on the DC motors!
