Has the era of Electric Vehicles (EVs) truly arrived? EVs are one of the most important, yet misunderstood, climate solutions even amongst those who understand the problem of climate change. Do EVs offer real emission savings compared to fossil-fueled vehicles? What about their batteries… really what about them? Do you have questions like these and others about the safety, range, and longevity of EVs? Then make sure you join Samrat Pathania – clean energy coach with New Yorkers for Clean Power for an information packed conversation.

Samrat Pathania grew up in India. His childhood love for science and mathematics culminated in a degree in mechanical engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur (India). After working several years as a software engineer with various multi-national corporations, Samrat became a teacher and currently teaches at Wallkill High School. Samrat is the former chair and coordinator of the New Paltz Climate Action Coalition. He is also a Climate Reality Leader and has served as co-chair of the Hudson Valley/Catskills chapter of the Climate Reality Project. Samrat has helped scores of individuals make their first electric vehicle purchases.  He lives in New Paltz with his family in net-zero home.
