Episode Summary

Just 15 seconds. That's all it takes to get a charge for an electric vehicle. At least that's what one EV expert says. Shawn Shepard takes us on a ride around Atlanta in a Wheego Whip with the first man in town to own one, and shows us why this driver is the exact customer car markers are targeting. Are they hard to charge? How much does it add to your monthly bill? What's the next level of charging? We answer your questions. This isn't the first love affair with electric vehicles. Lee Patrick Sullivan takes us back to the EV1, the country's very first electric vehicle to tell us why it failed and what carmakers have learned from it. Then let's head overseas to Iceland, and the land of geothermal. A country that gets virtually all of its energy from renewable sources, in this case geothermal. Tyler Suiters tells us how the country makes it work, and can it work here in the United States? Finally, going green at the office. A new law in the District of Columbia is making energy efficiency a priority at office buildings across the city. Dan Goldstein takes a look at the changing landscape for building managers and tenants.moreless
