Day One was the pickup day at the Mount Kisco store in Mount Kisco, NY. Given that I don’t live far from the store, I just left my car there and took the Tesla for four days. The manager was cool and didn’t mind that I left it there since the next week he was expecting a delivery of over 80 cars. That deserves: Boom!
So here’s the video of Seth getting back waxed on Regis and Kelly.

Title is “Green Dude Segment: Guest Green Dude Seth Leitman on Green Cars”
Seth is a very busy green dude, who is known as the Green Living Guy. He blogs (and tweets a LOT), does a radio show, and has written 8 books with more on the way! He squeezed us in after the NY Auto Show to talk about one his favorite topics – green cars. One of his latest books is, Build Your Own Electric Vehicle.
Listen to this fun Green Dude Segment
Installing green lighting may seem like a small and simple change, but it’s surprising how hefty the bottom-line savings can be. Many companies across the globe have switched to LEDs quietly and saving money, especially now that they offer such pleasing color options that really rival the look of incandescents. This international “switch out” has created green jobs and helps companies revamp their stores and hire more workers with the cash they save – all great things for the economy.
Even as an underrated technology, solar thermal is an amazing source of power with a quicker payback than photovoltaic (or PV, which is the normal solar panels that everyone used to seeing by now).

Electric Car Conversions: The Benefits for You. Excerpt of Build Your Own Electric Vehicle in MotherEarth News.
One of my co-authors of our new book Green Lighting, Seth Leitman, is soon to be embarking on a cross-country signing and speaking tour, sponsored by green clothing company A Lot To Say. Seth is a green living and electric car guru who has been in the space since 1993. He has also served as a consulting editor for an exciting group of books from publisher McGraw-Hill, including Green LightIng
Article in Earthtoys Alternative Energy Magazine about building electric cars.
Electric Cars That Might in 2001 on Electric Car program. Small excerpt
“For example, the cars do not need oil. They need a tuneup only once every six months, and the driver does not need to worry about trying to fix one, because there is not even a hood to open. They have timers so that they can turn themselves on and heat or cool the interior before the driver gets out of the train and into the car. Finally, while insurance will cost about the same as for a conventional car, the cars require only about a dollar’s worth of electricity to charge their 19 nickel-cadmium batteries completely.
”It’s less than a token on a subway, basically, to ‘fill up’ your car,” said Seth Leitman, the electric car program coordinator for the Power Authority.
And, the stereo sounds pretty good, there is no engine noise (at top speeds, the cars make a high whine, like a conventional car going in reverse) and if you want to be noticed, a bubble-shaped, Norwegian-built, electric car is almost as effective as a Lamborghini.“
Also, NYT Article when Electric Transportation Solutions, LLC was formed.
In conclusion, NY Times article Taking Hills on a Single Glide. Excerpt:
“Sales of P.E.V.’s, have increased anywhere from 40 to 200 percent annually over the last three or four years in the United States, said Seth Leitman, an alternative transportation consultant for New York State and, more recently, a P.E.V. retailer. And even though much of the market is made up of inexpensive imports that can be unreliable (in September, Target stores announced the recall of nearly 75,000 of its $200 Chinese-made Red Dragon and E-Scooters), a significant portion of it is composed of more expensive, powerful machines that offer the range, sturdiness and reliability to serve as genuine transportation aids. Mr. Penrose said that at his store he was having no trouble finding customers for his two-wheel stand-up electric scooters, larger, sit-down electric motorcycles and the wired-up mountain bike he was showing, the WaveCrest Tidal Force.“
