I wonder if, as people are talking about electric cars, whether any cohousing 
communities are sites where Zip cars are parked.  If you are, do you find that 
people from the larger community (not just your cohousing community) uses them? 
 If this should be a separate thread please reply with just Zip Cars in the 
subject line.

thanks  liz

many of our questions but received NO responses.  In case more communities have 
looked at the issues since then, I'm restarting that thread.  Our shared 
electric car died several years ago and hasn't been replaced but 2 members now 
have electric cars on site and more are expected. From 2010:"I wonder what 
Cohousing communities are doing to prepare for electric vehicles, owhich are 
likely to become more common as the plug-in hybrids (Nissan Leaf and Chevy 
Volt) become available. On this list there are a few references to individual 
with electric cars, but not much in detail or in the last couple of years.
Questions: Where will such cars be parked?How many spaces are you planning 
for?Who will pay for the infrastructure (outlets, etc)?How will the electricity 
used by paid for (metered or flat fee paid by the owner, or paid by the 
community)?Are there objections in the community to supporting electric cars 
(Examples: "Internal combustion vehicles are more eco-friendly." Or, "Electric 
cars will be acceptable only after we put in the infrastructure to 
capture/generate renewable energy ourselves.")? Marci
