Event Report

Our focus was to continue to build support for the purchase of EVs in Lake Oswego.  We had 99 registrations and 67 who attended the event live.  There is a recording of our event on the Lake Oswego Sustainability Network YouTube channel at

Our bid for action was to encourage participants to take an actual contactless EV test drive. To spur interest in that we created an EV Test Drive Challenge where anyone who takes an actual test drive in October can qualify for a drawing to have a Tesla of their choice to drive overnight for 24 hours. There are details at

The feedback we have had on the event has been very positive.
