The 2nd EV Users forum meeting will be held at the Northern Swimming Pool, Ramsey on the 15th of August.
The last meeting, held the Green Centre in Douglas, was considered useful and it was great for EV owners and those interested in EVs to get to gather and compare notes and discuss the practicalities of EV ownership on the Isle of Man.
We previously had Richard Bujko, Strategy & Business Development Manager at Manx Utilities, who was good enough to listen to the forum's thoughts and update us on the MUA's plans regarding EVs. Since the last meeting we have seen some charging bays painted as EV only and we are looking forward to seeing updated information of EV tariffs, public charging etc. Unfortunately Richard will be unable to attend on the 15th but we are hoping to have Andrew Cowie come along to represent the MUA. We are hoping that Andrew can bring along one of the MUA's Peugeot iONs or even the ManTTX TTZero race bike. Fingers crossed for that.
There is charging available at at the rear of the swimming pool building in the main car park. Although given the numbers of EVs at the last event we will have to take turns.
Electric cars, motorbikes, scooters and e-bicycles are all welcome, as are those who don't have EVs but would like to participate to learn more, or share their previous experiences.
We'll be meeting at 10am, on Saturday 15th August 2015, at the cafe by the pool, we've reserved the long tables in the front window. We aim to gather at 10am, get everyone parked up and fuelled with tea and cake, and kick off the meeting at 10.15am-ish.
Hope to see you there!
