Electric Auto Association of Silicon Valley (EAA SV)
Delegate: Jerry Pohorsky
The EAASV is our local chapter of the Electric Auto Association (EAA), which has many local chapters throughout the United States as well as a few international chapters. The Silicon Valley Chapter has evolved from the original EAA founding event in 1967, and has promoted the adoption of electric cars ever since. In the early years, there were very few commercially available electric cars, so some of our “DIY” (do it yourself) members would convert a gasoline powered car into an electric car using forklift motors and lead acid batteries.
