“â€œMany of the people that come to plug in and eat tell me they only came to Naunaâ€™s because of the chargers in the parking lot, and that they didnâ€™t know of the restaurant before finding it on their EV charging app,â€ said Moloughney, who has been driving electric since 2009. â€œIâ€™m averaging about five or six electric vehicles per week now, and the number is definitely on the rise.â€”

I’ve known that for ages because I’ve made major purchases simply because of a chance encounter with an ad that caught my eye.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Peavey Mart. There’s only one near me in Manitoba so far, but they’ve plastered charging stations at most of their locations and I could not drive across the prairies with my “next year” Solo EV without them. You bet I’m going to walk the aisles checking out products and prices. I might buy tools, seeds, consumables for welding/soldering, stuff I use a lot at home. The Solo is a great tool for shoppers. It can hold a whole basket of goods.
Thanks to all the small businesses helping customers, EV users and enthusiasts and building our economy.
