Calling On All EV Enthusiast in the Finger Lakes Region

May 05, 2020 12:50 PM | Stephen Pallotta (Administrator)

On May 1st of 2020, I had a conversion with Rick Cognata (Regional Organizer), and Don Wilcox (Key Member), about some of our short and long term goals for TOCNYS for the Finger Lakes Region. Rick Cognata had many weeks upon weeks of events and meetings planned, but due to the recent and current circumstances, they have been postponed.

While many great ideas were shared during our conversation, there is one in particular that I would like to start working on with some of you. Like many of us, Don Wilcox (who has a background in mechanical engineering), is passionate about discovering what makes something tick. Our idea is to assemble a team of club members who are interested in building a simple EV from the ground up. We will start to put our ideas and design together online, and then slowly transition to working together in person, when the time comes. 

If you are interested in helping plan, design, construct, assemble, etc., please respond to this email and CC both Rick Cognata ( cogs5150@gmail.com ) and Don Wilcox ( wilcoxmodel3@gmail.com ). In order to best plan and organize for this project, please add the following information to your response : 

1.) First / Last Name

2.) Email address 

3.) Phone Number

4.) What skill(s) you may be able to offer: (design, CAD, welding, battery management, parts, assembly, or anything else that you may be able to offer).
