Event Report

L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti's representatives awarded a proclamation naming Sept. 15-21, 2014 National Drive Electric Week in the City of Los Angeles. From the Whereases: "local greenhouse gas emissions...are a contributing factor to air pollution and climate change, threateningthe health of our citizens and the sustainability of our planet." Gasoline prices are escalating "to levels that overburden commerce, hurt economic growth and cause hardship to our citizens." EVs "reduce our dependence on foreign fuels, and support a healthy environment and economy." National Drive Electric Week showcases "the fun, convenience, clean-air benefits and cost-savings of electric cars...."

Ed Begley, Jr., who has driven an EV on solar power longer than anyone on Earth, celebrated his 65th birthday with us and joined our speaking program.
