Just today we’re hearing: Tesla Passes Ford by Market Cap Before Musk Delivers Model 3.

Ouch, who would’ve thought! Now you never know if that will stick but it’s a pretty substantial moment.

Why should we be thinking about electric vehicles (EV’s)? ¬†Well, for starters, emissions from transportation in the US last year rose above those from electricity generation, a first. So it’s important that we keep our eye on these emissions. EV’s, especially when combined with renewable energy sources, can greatly reduce emissions.

For another thing, the EV market is poised for growth. There’s no absolute winner in terms of company or even battery technology yet, and more companies are jumping on board even in Illinois.
