A Year Since My Last Post

The last year has been a sad one for those of us who loved the ZENN low speed electric vehicle. ZENN Motor Company announced last fall they were ceasing production and this spring they did just that. ZENN has been positioning themselves to supply other vehicle manufacturers with drivetrains incorporating ultra-capacitors made by EEStor Inc, but there has not been much news from EEStor lately either. In any case, they are continuing to work on bringing zero emission transportation solutions to the market so hopefully we will hear from them soon.

For more see:

"ZENN abandons electric car plant" in the Montreal Gazette from December 8, 2010

"The End of ZENN" in the Globe and Mail from December 9, 2010

For the next while I'm going to focus on the green renovation of an old downtown home in the moderately cold climate that is Toronto. The posts will be mostly shorter than they have been, but today will be my transition day!

Oops! Those two articles above were of course from December 2009 and not 2010. Sorry about that.
