350 Humboldt presents a discussion on Zoom, “Electric cars could help save the world! But where will we charge them?” on Monday, April 5, at 7:00 p.m.

EVs could help tame the climate crisis. But where will the growing number of EV drivers find a charge? And will public chargers be available to all, or limited to wealthy areas? EV researchers Chih-Wei Hsu, Anh Bui, and Derek Ichien will discuss the gap in access to public chargers in California and detail charger access in Humboldt County. They'll also present examples from across the nation of how charger access can be maximized, and propose what might work for Humboldt.

All three presenters are alumni of Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, and currently work on EV charger access and equitability issues. This event is cosponsored by 11th Hour, Environmental Protection Information Center, Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities, Humboldt Unitarian Fellowship Climate Action Campaign, Sierra Club North Group, Temple Beth-El, and Cooperation Humboldt.
