Travelling Electric

February 25 @ 2:00 pm

Travelling Electric: owning and operating electric vehicles.

Whether you are considering buying an electric vehicle, already own one or simply want to know what all the fuss is about – come along to Travelling Electric. There’ll be no sales pitch or glitzy gimmicks – only the genuine perspectives and expertise of EV owners and their personal experiences.

This event will be especially useful for drivers who are new to EV’s and are curious to learn more about the practical side of owning them. If that sounds like you, come along to this free event organised by Renew Hunter Region Branch and sponsored by the Maitland Showground.

This special event starts at 2pm

2pm: ‘An Owner’s Perspective on Electric Vehicles’ by Les Pinney, EV expert and member of Renew Hunter Branch committee.

Les will outline the different types of electric vehicles and discuss the practical considerations of owning an EV such as charging, running costs and batteries – as well as a look at what the future of EV’s might look like. We will also have the latest electrifying news from the Hunter region and beyond.

2.45pm: A panel discussion including Q&A between EV owners and the audience. Renew members have a wealth of knowledge and experience between them, and several are professionals in related fields. Come prepared with your questions!

3.30pm: We will head out to the outdoor area to inspect several different EV models and chat to their owners. Specialist EV charger installer, Ryan from Fixer Electrical, will be on hand to answer more detailed questions about charging options.
