By visiting Benicia Mini Maker Faire this year you will get a great idea of how far clean transportation has come in the last 5 years or so. The Benicia Community Sustainability Commission has helped us round up a number of new exhibits this year. There will be a bus from SolTrans, a Chevy Spark and Volt, a Nissan Leaf, and a Tesla model S (shown above) on display. Owners will be available to ask questions in most cases, so if you have been thinking of going electric, this is a great chance to find out more information.
California E-bikes will also be bringing some electric assist bicycles which can get you up and down all of hills in our region. These bikes come in all shapes and sized and you can even convert your own into a human powered hybrid that’s good for the environment.
