Remember when the idea of plugging your car into the house power was absurd and better left to science fiction? It ranked right up there with the hover car from “Back to the Future II”. And yet, we all wanted one. Well, we can’t have a hover car just yet, but it is possible to park an electric car in your driveway and have an extension cord snaking across the floor to the wall. We saw this a few years ago, but ever since General Motors pulled the plug on the electric car (so to speak), and with gas prices cresting $4, the nation has been clamoring for increased fuel efficiency. Much to the chagrin of the big three automakers and countless petroleum companies, the return of the electric car is once again upon us and PlugInAmerica.org is there to launch a new campaign to educate consumers on the merits of electric powered vehicles. The latest is the Tesla –named after famed genius and rival to Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, who pioneered Alternating Current, radio waves, public lighting, and the well known “Tesla Coil” that sits in many museums across the world, including the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA.
The “Tesla” is considered the King of Electric Vehicles. The campaign of public service announcements (PSAs) for Plug In America was produced at Loyal Studios’ Santa Monica location with a crew of passionate volunteers determined to re-educate the public, and raise awareness of alternative fuel vehicles. In addition to the three very witty, insightful spots the folks at PluginAmerica.org also produced a ‘Making Of’ video that is filled with interviews and information, as well as providing a look at the inner workings of our very own Loyal Studios. But best of all, in addition to the RAV4-EV vehicle that was at the studio, we had a couple of Tesla’s on site for those who participated in the project to take rides in. What an amazing demonstration of the capability of electric power! The Tesla is a prime example of what is possible. Best of all, electric cars don’t have to be boring, slow or limiting. Loyal Studios and ProHD Rentals are proud to have participated in such an important message. ” We support plug in America and the drive to create less pollution” Bob Bekian, owner of Loyal Studios states. ” We also try to be environmentally responsible in the way we run our studios. We have an aggressive recycling program, and we reuse expendables as much as possible.” Loyal Studios has partnered up with UNEP (United Nations Environmental Programme), has worked with the American Heart Association, and worked with Michael Tobias for his eco-aware, “State of the Earth” project.
The future of our planet and, more importantly, our existence on this big blue ball depends on our current and future actions–with respect to natural resources, renewable resources, capital resources and, of course, human resources. Please visit PlugInAmerica.org to learn more about the progress and importance of pushing forward electric vehicles. The next in line may be the Hydrogen car.
