Earlier this month, @bchydro completed the second phase of their electric vehicle fast charging network. 28 new stations joined the 30 from 2016, allowing drivers to travel from the Alberta border all the way to Tofino!
What is holding you back from going green?

When organising a holiday to Scandinavia, most people take multiple (long) ferries. But ferries and cruise ships are big polluters 🚢. To give an example: when only one cruise ship crosses Antwerp’s inner city, it pollutes as much as 1 million diesel cars on the same route.
That’s why we limited our ferry tickets and preferred our electric car for the slightly longer detour.
This single ferry we had to take was to the beautiful island Gotland.
But, the future looks bright 🌅. Countries like Norway are heavily investing in electrifying their fleet ⛴️.
Norway’s first all-electric ferry is now two years old and cut emission by 95% and costs by 80%. They have ordered 50+ of these future proof ships. Earlier this year, the Norwegian parliament has acted to halt emissions from cruise ships in the fjords – making them zero-emission zones by 2026 where only electric ships will be able to go. Their newest boat has a 1.8 MWh battery pack (equivalent of 40 electric cars), which can be recharged in just 20 minutes during loading and unloading 🔋🔌.

It's his first new Motorcycle ever! Previously he's always bought used gas bikes, but now he's upgraded to Electric & a Brand new Zero! The perfect eBike for commuting through LA Traffic & also getting after it Off-Road in SoCal's non-paved environs!

Enjoyed testing out the 9.9kw diginow charging system that was custom installed by the mad scientist @electriccowboyracing on the all electric green motorcycle. I had a blast going from 100% to 0% twice in one day with no issues and battery temperatures stayed cool even on a hot summer day of fast charging and riding. Thank you Brandon for hot rodding my motor bike!! Also I was able to travel with my XS Soprano Ukulele designed by @pepe_romero_jr and @daniel_ho_creations in my motorcycle because of its compact size. I’m excited to introduce my new ukulele and a new project involving it soon!! #zeromotorcycles#diginow#ukulele#motorcycle#electricvehicle#tesla#houseofkolor#green#greenboystudios#losangeles#santamonica#clippercreek#freehat
