David Phipps is psyched about electric cars.

"Electric cars is where it's at," said Mr. Phipps, who runs the Electra–Tech Services Company in George Town. "Electric cars are needed on this island."

Mr. Phipps has been trying for more than a year to bring vehicles powered solely by electricity to Grand Cayman. He said his business doesn't ell cars, but one day he hopes that will change.
