Hmm! Try https://www.facebook.com/pages/Australian-Electric-Vehicle-Association/98740467186 jonescg (assume you are a page admin) - you can go to https://www.facebook.com/username to rename the page to something shorter - I notice https://www.facebook.com/AEVA isn't actively being used.

That's great timing... I was having a look through to see what other branches had done! I couldn't find any groups/pages for any other branches (just the national AEVA page) so I wasn't sure if it was because the national body didn't approve of it, or if none of them had decided to do it :) I also l...

Not me, given it is on Four Springs Road I have a pretty good idea as to who it is though ;)

ALP, motoring.com.au, Tesla and Tassie

It's a bit peculiar isn't it. According to Matt Brogan on twitter, their accommodation didn't have any charging facilities, but "RACT were able to help out with a 240V connection". So they didn't leave it charging at 240V overnight? And apparently they tried charging at MONA (tweets seemed to imply ...

Name?

The National Council is happy with "Tasmania", the Tasmanian members are happy with "Tasmania" - this thread is on the second page - is arguing about this the best use of our time?

Name?

Now, let's say that Melbourne1 starts up an AEVA branch and calls itself the Vic. branch. This is the core of the issue. I wasn't at the meeting, but as I understand it, there were a number of northern/Launceston people in attendance. It wasn't that Hobart people called themselves the Tas branch - ...

Name?

I've only been an AEVA member for a short time, but I have a lifetime of experience of living in Tasmania. For a group this size there is no other option. I see that no other state has grown to the point where there is more than one branch within the state. Given the smaller population in Tassie I d...

Name?

Pretty much what 4Springs says - there are a few exceptions, but generally organisations in Tasmania are named as such, and not the individual city. Speaking for myself as a Launceston-born Hobart resident, I try to be as inclusive as possible :)

EVs in the news in Tassie

A couple of recent stories I've found: http://reneweconomy.com.au/2015/tasmania-looks-to-evs-as-next-step-to-100-renewable-energy-32899 http://www.motoring.com.au/news/2015/tasmania-turns-green-51566 Both of these appear to have been prompted by the Tasmanian Energy Strategy: http://www.stategrowth....

Hello from a new user!

Hi everyone, I'm a new forum member from Hobart, Tasmania. Although have had a lengthy, although very casual, interest in EVs, I've never been much of a car nut at all! Back when the Prius first came out I was dead set on getting one! Of course the cost at the time was a bit much, the other issue wa...
