For those who want to know about electric vehicles, we hit on a vast amount of topics Wednesday on La Crosse Talk PM with Jeremiah Brockman, president of the Wisconsin chapter of the Electric Vehicle Association.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Brockman was thrown a list of about 50 things having to deal with EVs — including how they hold up in winter, “gas mileage,” environmental impacts and charging. Brockman was a great sport in answering as many as we could get through.

Brockman is also putting together an August 9-10 fundraiser, driving across Wisconsin with other EV owners, making stops in multiple cities on the way — including Olson Solar in La Crosse. Part of the fundraiser to to provide scholarships for students who would like to become EV mechanics.

    What a farce. How do renters own EV’s? Do they run multiple extension cords from their apartments to the car? How do they stop people from disconnecting them or taking the extension cords? We know in severe cold or heat they may not charge at all.
    Hybrids are the way to go. I own one and if I just do routine trips in LaCrosse fill up once a month.
    Why doesn’t lying Joe issue yet another unconstitutional executive order banning gas guzzlers ?
