This event was a ribbon cutting for the new Adopt a Charger installation at Point Reyes National Seashore in memorial to Craig Childers, a long time Engineer with CARB and a strong proponent for plug in vehicles. The Marin School of Environment Leadership collaborated with Adopt a Charger and was able to secure funding from the County of Marin, the Transportation Authority of Marin, the Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association and Electric Auto Association to fund (3) Level 2 and (2) level 1 EV charging opportunities.
Marin County Supervisor, Steve Kinsey and Cicely Muldoon, the Superintendent of Point Reyes National Seashore were on hand for the ribbon cutting. A special thank you goes to Marc Geller from Plug In America for spearheading the project.
