Do your part without trying
The buzz is definitely in the air and everyone is little by little becoming more eco-friendly and environmentally consiousness. I have been looking into what makes a difference and what will have a large impact in a short amount of time. We obviously know that electric cars are going to make an impact; the news, internet and every other commercial has told us that. Avel's Law: Solve one problem, gain another(why not Murphy's got one)! They still require large amounts of energy to recharge their batteries. Energy is a commodity believe it our not. Ask any Californian who has experienced rolling brownouts.
What do you mean: Power is a Commodity?
First of all New York, California, Michigan, Illinois and the list goes on, electricity isnt always the easiest to come by because of the brownouts and blackouts they experience regularly. Secondly, California's electrical rates are going to take a 30% rate hike as well as the increasing rates in Arizona and Nevada. That is just listing the known problems off the top of my head. Hopefully you can see the pattern that is developing.
So whats the Scooter about?
An Electric Scooter requires minimal power comparatively to its distant cousin, the electric car. The scooters are street legal, require no registration, insurance or driver license to operate. They go about 30 mph depending on terrain and driving conditions. You can travel up to 40 miles on a single charge. They are safe for young kids with proper supervisions obviously.
The effects of reducing the use of a gas powered vehicle without buying a new hybrid or electric car is phenomenal. An electric scooter is an easy way to help with the environment. They come in all different sizes, colors, and styles; even the classic vespa.
