Parking for at the Trenton Festival.

The control electronics for driving the electric motor is under a clear cover. The wiring is super-neat, color-coded, and easy to understand. The green box on the left is the battery charger. The batteries are in welded metal boxes under the bench seats.

The DC motor drives the rear-wheel transaxle on this vehicle. The electric wiring and mechanics are neat and easy to get at. The work was supervised by an electrician, but executed by the high school students. An excellent example of how these things should be done, to my mind.

Display boards explain the Green Energy Project and the chemistry of making biodiesel.
