    Intesresting company here in Sarasota, FL at The Green Hopper. This young woman, Briana O'Brien, came up with the idea to provide EV taxis to people downtown and on the keys and in the beach areas as free shuttles to/from hotels, parking, clubs, restaurants etc. Passengers pay tips only for the drivers, the EV's are financed through ads on the vehicles. They are currently using golf cart batteries with 110v standard plug charging, however she wants to convert them to a system that will allow her to use J1772.

    Met Briana at the Sustainable Communities Workshop and she asked 100 questions about the Roadster; think this young woman has a bright future.
