Johnny Appleseed meets the electric highway. Proving the viability of electric vehicles while planting trees in each of 48 U.S. States, Brian Kent of New York will charge his batteries at 10 a.m. today at the charging station at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
 
The community is invited to stop by and meet Kent and hear about his efforts to change the public’s perceptions of electric vehicles.
 
Kent’s goal is to drive to every state capital, covering 26,289 miles in 100+ days. So far, he has traveled 17,280 miles in 86 days, averaging more than 200 miles a day. He accomplishes long distances by using apps to locate charging stations, and by using the 50-amp hookups at KOA campgrounds, one of his sponsors.

In 100 days and a 100 ton difference in carbon pollution, Kent intends to show that any person can make a difference with a little effort … just by believing they can and by looking at the world slightly differently.
