Retirement (The Plan)

I plan to retire in 3 years.

An electric car makes so much sense to retirees.

So I took out a 3 year lease on an Electric car.

So in 3 year, I plan on paying out the lease and I will have a 3 year old EV for $15000.

I expect that EV to do me for the rest of my driving live.

Monday Green Mail Restarts

Monday April 3, I will be resuming mail delivery with my EV. (Thus Green Mail)

As an RSMC we provide our own vehicles to deliver mail on our mail route. We get paid mileage for the kilometres that we drive to complete the route.

In July 2016 I decided to lease an EV to use on the route. I chose a Kia Soul. I need at least 50 cubic feet of cargo space and enough range to complete the route and return home.

All went well. $2 a day for electricity instead of $13 for gasoline was one of the benefits.

Then November came. My range just kept getting shorter. I had to find places to charge en route in order to make it home.

The first week of Dec., I called it quits on the EV for the winter.

So tomorrow I go back to the EV for delivering,

With the installation of a quick charger, in my delivery city, I should be able to use my EV year round from now on.

For anyone interested in my posts from July 2016 to now, they can go to .

I know the next generations will appreciate, we EVers for helping to keep their planet clean.
