What’s The BUZZ:

 

We are in the infant stages of the electric vehicles. Norman Zarwin, E. Harris Baum, Stephen Zarwin, Mickey McLaughlin and David Soens have formed U-Go Stations, Inc. to respond for the future growth of the EV industry. Powering EVs, for many who wish to purchase this new market segment needs to be convenient, quick and easy but not a lengthy process. U-Go Stations, Inc. has partnered with South Jersey Green LLC, Jerry Reich, Green Power Technology and Coloumb Industries with support from the Greater Philadelphia Clean Cities Program to develop the EV charging station area infrastructure to make charging stations available to the public. A plug-in vehicle will be demonstrated at Southport Plaza on November 10, 2010.
