Here's the March, 2018 edition of Today River Valley

In this edition:

Not many people own and drive electric vehicles.  That may be about to change and western Maine is getting ready.  Electric vehicles used to go only 50 to 100 miles before needing a recharge, and recharging required plugging in for 10 to 12 hours.  Now, new electric vehicles from Tesla can go 200 to 300 miles on a charge.  More, the advantages over gas powered cars are many, including much lower fuel (electric versus gas) costs and a third of the maintenance a gas car requires.  See how Maine is getting ready for the probable coming transition to electric vehicles.
