Sometimes the proudest achievement is the hardest one to measure in terms of its impact down the road.Such is the case with the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania and the lobbying effort it led a decade ago to implement anti-idling legislation.
That legislation put into place time limits on idling in the hope the new restrictions could reduce fine particulate emissions from diesel engine exhausts.
The Clean Air Board will be meeting on Feb. 1, 7 pm to discuss the future of electric vehicles. Why drive an electric car? We will discuss this question with Felix Edem, a representative from Brenner Nissan in Mechanicsburg, PA.
Electric vehicles will become commonplace in the near future. CAB has been participating in the Drive Electric PA Coalition meetings with PennDOT, the PUC and PA DEP. https://driveelectricpa.org/ At the last meeting of the coalition, Nissan manufacturer representatives talked a bit about the 2018 Nissan Leaf, a zero emissions vehicle that can travel 150 miles on a single charge.
CAB meets at the Second Presbyterian Church, 528 Garland Drive, Carlisle, PA. For directions, click here
