Sierra Club: Electric Vehicles – The Time is Now

August 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Thursday, August 5, the Sierra Club presents Dave Erb, an automotive engineer and professor, who will tell us what’s new in the electric vehicle market and why now might be the time for you to get one.
The event will be held over Zoom from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

Erb, who has worked on electric vehicles (EVs) for decades, sees EVs as an important tool in decarbonizing personal transportation. Learn why the time is right – right now. He will pay particular attention to some of the mis- and disinformation which might lead people to delay purchasing plug-in vehicles.

A local “guru” on electric vehicles, Erb spent his 40-year automotive engineering career focused on energy and emissions. He developed vehicles using gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, alcohol, natural gas, electric, and hybrid electric powertrains.
