I'm Stephen Bell, my partner is Sheila Joynes and we just received an email from Emily at OVO suggesting we come to the Forum and introduce ourselves.
We have owned our Nissan Leaf for four years, and we're OVO customers - eagerly awaiting Vehicle to Grid! (We're supposedly on the guinea pig list for V2G but have yet to hear when it might happen.)
Sheila and I are also founder members of ElectrAA - the Electric Automobile Association. ElectrAA exists to "Promote the use and enjoyment of Electric Vehicles" - basically to educate the public about the many advantages of EVs. We work with organisations such as Classic Car Shows to include EVs at events such as the Festival of Transport at Blenheim Palace and other similar events.
We also give talks to groups such as Business clubs, Probus Groups, WI, Rotary etc. We have had a great deal of success with these, probably the most notable being that the day after one such talk, the club secretary went out and bought a Leaf which he's since upgraded to the 2018 model.
Please do pass around the ElectrAA website address
...where you will find a number of short, sharp, videos which answer many of the common questions about EV ownership. Here's an example . . .
We also published a 4 page A5 leaflet called "The Seven Most Common Myths About Electric Vehicles". If you would like some to pass around or just keep in your car to hand out to the people you talk to, drop us a line via the website, give us your address and say how many you would like.
Contact us through the website if we can be of any help in promoting the wonders of Electric Vehicles.
