MECC – The Methacton Electric Car Club
Welcome! We are the Methacton Electric Car Club, a high school club based in Methacton High School in Eagleville Pennsylvania. We actively maintain an award-winning electric car, which we use to educate the public at competitions, science fairs, and exhibitions in the greater Philadelphia area and around the Northeast. We are the only such club in the entire state of Pennsylvania!
We actively participate in several events and competitions, aiming to further improve our car and to raise awareness about alternative energy and electric cars. We work with everyone from elementary school students in local libraries and schools to environmentalists at New York’s earth day.
- Converting our box truck to run on vegetable oil.
- Making our box truck into a mobile classroom on alternative energy.
- Setting up a photovoltaic array on top of the box truck to charge the electric car.
- Increase battery pack to 14 batteries to get 100 miles per charge.
