Event Report

Small-town event at the local library. We had more EVs participate (10) this year than last year, plus one motorcycle. In spite of the horrible weather (dust and 35+ mph winds), we had about 50 people attend the event.

Event Description


Family-friendly event in front of the Richland Public Library. There will be various plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs) displayed and a presentation about current and future electric vehicles. Come and learn about current EV's in an informal Q&A session with owners. Everyone is welcome. For more information, go to: If you can attend, bring an EV, provide assistance, perhaps even allow test drives, please sign up as a volunteer at the above website. Also, we need as many EV owners to show up and display vehicles. Please show up by 11:30am Saturday so that we can park all the cars in a row. I will have a small table display of EV information. Feel free to bring anything you think might be of interest to the public, portable charging cables, etc.
