Event Report

We unfortunately had a pretty poor weather at our event (rainy and windy) so that watered the attendance down a lot.

Event Description


We will have our Twin Cities National Plug In Day 2013 on Saturday, September 28, 1-4 pm, at the Lower Capitol Mall in front of the State Capitol building in Saint Paul. MLK Street will be closed so plug-in vehicle owners are invited to show their vehicles on the street and share their experiences with the public.

If you are interested in plug-in vehicles, come to see the cars and talk with owners. We will also have information about public charging infrastructure and electric utility company representatives sharing information about renewable energy programs and PEV charging rate structures and incentives. 

Check out the list of vehicles coming to this event below. This event is free and open to everyone. Visit  to see some photos of last year's event. Hope to see you there.

This event is organized by Minnesota Plug-in Vehicle Owners' Circle and .
