Student Project #3: You are a homeowner and owner of a gasoline powered automobile that has reached the end of its useful life. You have decided to purchase a new automobile to replace the gasoline powered vehicle. You have the option to replace your current vehicle with another gasoline or other fossil fueled vehicle or replace with an electric vehicle. You are being asked to focus your research on the types of electric vehicles which includes describing and evaluating battery technologies, charging systems, maintenance requirements and make a cost comparison with comparable fossil fuel powered vehicles. Research should include the evaluation of the technical and human impact of an electric service interruption from the local utility which could prevent recharging the vehicle battery. This evaluation should include analyzing the impact of the loss of vehicle use to an individual or a group of individuals. Perform an economic and financial assessment of the option to sell back power stored in the vehicle battery to the electric utility as an alternative to driving a fully charged electric vehicle.
