> Kailash Ecovillage wishes to share our 2 all electric vehicles (EVs) with

> We considered using Getaround but they said they are not currently enrolling 
> our two EV models (2017 Bolt, 250 mile range; 2013 Leaf, 80 mile range). They 
> only are servicing Teslas at this time.
> One idea was to simply use our community Google calendar to book the vehicles 
> by the hour, day, or week. We would have the vehicle keyless FOBs either in a 
> secure location or with a selected member in charge. Residents would take a 
> snapshot of the odometer when they got the key and when they returned the 
> car. The photo time stamps would be used to document possession and use. 
> (miles, time)
> The vehicles would be charged by our on site photovoltaic panels so the 
> transportation would be 100% solar powered.
> Drivers would be added to the insurance driver roster.
> We would have a recommended donation for vehicle maintenance for insurance 
> and upkeep. The car share would be operated in a non profit fashion.
> We are looking for any suggestions for a better way and would love to hear of 
> any community experiences in pulling this off.
