Is an Electric Vehicle Right for You?


Are you considering leasing or buying an electric vehicle (EV) and want real information versus a sales pitch? Join this online class to hear from local, long-time EV drivers and experts on their experiences. Get your questions answered on the difference between all-electric and plug-in hybrid EVs; EV charging at home, work, and in public spaces; range anxiety concerns; battery longevity; buying vs. leasing; and the environmental, economic, and personal benefits of EV adoption.

This class is also approved for the Cardinal Green financial incentive.

Instructors: Jim Barbera is a systems engineer at ChargePoint, the nation’s largest charging company. He is versed in all aspects of EV life, including leasing, buying, charging, maintenance, installing charging stations as well as solar panels. He is now an experienced EV driver (95,000 electric miles) and has driven nearly all makes and models of EVs.

Jane Rosten, MSW, LCSW, is manager of the environmental behavior change program for the Stanford Health Improvement Program. She initiated HIP?s electric vehicle classes in 2015 when she became the happy owner of an EV.
