The purpose of this blog is to share about the topics I am passionate about.
I want to share about the things that my family are doing to reduce our impact on the climate and the environment around us. I hope that some of the changes we have made will spark your interest, and you too might seek to explore possibilities around what you can do.

We were asked: are electric cars able to travel up hills at a reasonable pace, or are they really slow when hard work is required?
There’s a trend of transitioning from petrol and diesel vehicles, to vehicles powered by electricity. In this post, I’ll report on the growth rates of EV sales in NZ and similar overseas markets.
The car’s motor will slow down the car when you take you foot off the accelerator, and the byproduct is electricity which flows back into the battery. Technically termed Regenerative Braking, or Regen, this happens automatically (and silently) while you drive. It’s not something you think about.
Most people with electric cars (EVs) normally need to charge up the battery every 2 or 3 days. If you have a newer car with a larger battery, you might go a week without charging. If you drive longer distances in an older EV, you might need to charge daily.
