The Mayor of the fine city of San Francisco has a bit of blogger in him. Just yesterday Mayor Gavin Newsom wrote a guest post on our favorite beyond petroleum blog gas2.0 [2], kicking off the race to build the first electric vehicle grid [3] in the US! Newsom’s post [4] is a response to Portland’s Mayor Sam Adams’ move to be the first city to implement a EV charging infrastructure to support a city of gas free cars. Gas 2.0 has said it best: The EV wars have begun [5]! This is exactly the kind of civic pride and commitment coupled with healthy competition that is necessary to push electric vehicles along to new places – pay attention Chicago, Austin, Boston, and New York! Don’t let these west coasters have all the fun, jump in and let’s see what we can do. Game on!
