Electric car display and talk in Eden Mills Oct. 10

EDEN MILLS – The Eden Mills Going Carbon Neutral project will host a presentation about electric vehicles on Oct. 10.

There will be a viewing of eight electric cars in the parking  lot of the Eden Mills community hall, 5:30 to 6:15pm, then a talk by Tim Burrows  at 6:30 pm.

Burrows is an electric car enthusiast who has owned and driven a battery-electric car since 2013.

“We are at the beginning of a revolution in the auto industry,” he said.

“Electric cars and driverless vehicles will begin to have a profound effect on society in the very near future.”

Burrows’ presentation is informal, not highly technical, and is open for questions and answers.

Burrows, who lives in Carlisle, is a retired vice president of Forty Creek Distillery and a graduate of the University of Toronto.

He is an active member of the Electric Vehicle Society, which works to promote the advancement of electric mobility in Canada.

Eden Mills launched the Going Carbon Neutral project in 2007 and continues to pursue its goal of becoming the first carbon neutral village in North America.
