Revenge of the Electric Car


I drive an EV today, in part because of the 2006 documentary, Who Killed the Electric Car? I saw the movie in late 2006 and then purchased my first EV in Feb 2007. Later that same year I put solar panels on my house to power that EV. That year changed the way I see the world. I have been an EV and solar advocate ever since. Now I have blogs, twitter feeds, and facebook pages dedicated to solar power and EVs.

So when Chris Paine, the director of Who Killed the Electric Car?, recently wrote a Huffington Post article asking the EV blogosphere to start spreading the word about his new movie, I jumped at the chance. The new movie is called Revenge of the Electric Car and it is scheduled for release in the Spring of 2011.

If you want to see a trailer for the movie, it is going to be premiered on the movie's facebook page when the page reaches 10,000 fans. As I write this, they currently have over 6000 fans. They have added over 1000 fans in the last week and they are growing fast.

I love 'Who Killed the Electric Car', and it is inspirational. I'm also looking forward to Revenge of the Electric Car. However, if there is one thing that disappointed me about 'Who killed the electric car?', it's the fact that it devotes extremely little time to the EV + renewable energy, EV + PV connection. I hope Chris brings this more into view in 'Revenge of the Electric Car'.

I agree that EV+PV is a great combination. With the money from WKTEC Chris bought a Tesla Roadster and a PV system for his home. Maybe there will be more about PV is this movie.
