LA’s NPR Radio Station Interviews Drew Shula

Frances Anderton, host of DnA: Design and Architecture, a weekly radio show broadcast on Los Angeles’ National Public Radio (NPR) station, KCRW, interviewed Verdical Group Founder & Principal, Drew Shula, during the Net Zero 2018 Conference, a Verdical Group produced event. Drew spoke about electric vehicles (EV’s) and the fact that they are paradoxically purchased by drivers who want to do the right thing for the environment, but are plugging their electric cars into a largely dirty electricity grid that still generates much of its energy from coal powered plants. While California is heading in the right direction with Governor Jerry Brown signing State Bill 100 in September 2018 which requires the entire State to run on 100% clean electricity from renewable energy sources by 2045, there is still a long way to go. You can read the article on the KCRW website and listen to a recording of the radio segment that aired on September 12, 3018 here.
