Event Report

After a week of rain, the Juneau EV round up was blessed with a dose of sun and rainbows for the EV round up.  The Local radio station had a live program from the event where the latest makes and models of EV and EV trucks were on display. IBEW local 1547 cooked and served over 120 hamburgers and 100 hot dogs.   The event included many late model EV's as well as Electric bikes and electric outboard motors. Juneau, a community of 30,000 residents now boasts over 800 electric vehicles.

Two of the sponsors, Juneau Auto Mall is the #1 Subaru EV dealer in the nation, while Juneau Affordable Sales has sold dozens of used electric vehicles in Juneau.  Jueau Affordable Auto Sales raffled 4 winter tires for a Leaf or Bolt.   The event celebrated many volunteers who have participated and volunteered over 10 years at the Juneau EV round up.
Several local Assembly candidates were able to discuss with the public their support for Electric Vehicles and the installation of more public charging stations to keep up with demand.

Additionally, on display was  a 2013 Leaf with over 126,000 local miles  on it and going strong. Our local newspaper did a great write-up of the event and for additional photos, please read the following link:
