Michael, a local paramedic, purchased an electric vehicle because he’s concerned about the health impacts of car pollution.
“Buying an electric vehicle was an opportunity for me to make a contribution to the health of my community, and the health of the planet,” said Michael.
“My wife and I bought this car in October 2019, and we’re very happy with it. We can drive to Cairns on a single charge, but also enjoy stopping off in Tully to charge up halfway.
“It is very zippy around town with immediate acceleration.
“Driving 500kms costs at most $12 and it costs nothing if we’re able to charge entirely off our solar panels.”
