National Drive Electric Week
Sep 15, 2019
|Day:||Sunday, September 15, 2019 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Event ReportWe again had a very nice event however the weather did not create the Sunshine and Rainbows that would have made it perfect.
Enthusiastic Evers and some interested soon to be EV drivers made up for the weather. i guess we must be thankful that rain fills the hydro dams and that is where a large part of the EV Kilowatts are generated.
We hope next year to have the local utility run test drives. They did so at a few locations earlier in the year and our EV owners supported them with great EVs on display.
In Washington State is we are having an effect on policies that encourage EVs. For example the sales tax is now reduced for both new and used EVs. And Some cities are increasing the local fast charging stations. An example is a new row of Tesla Super Chargers in Issaquah near the Fred Meyer Store.
Issaquah is near a lot of tech workers homes so perhaps that explains one of the reasons we are seeing more Teslas and in fact more Leafs as well. As you can see we had a good sampling of EV models so that the public had a number of different EVs to compare.
Thanks also go the the sponsors of National Drive Electric Week, Seattle Electric Vehicles Assoc. and the Tesla Owners Club who always brings a colorful variety.
