Event Description


Join us to celebrate Drive Electric Week, San Luis Obispo

We'll gather at 11:00am at the charging stations outside of the Target in San Luis Obispo at 11990 Los Osos Valley Road

The Mayor of San Luis Obispo,  Heidi Harmon, has confirmed and will participate (she is an electric car driver and global climate warrior!) so we are fortunate to have her to say a few words. Also, Congressman Salud Carbajal has been contacted.

After Heidi addresses the folks, we will take a great photo with the Mayor and our electric caravan!

Then we depart West on Los Osos Valley Road and make a right onto Turri Road (a gorgeous drive) to South Bay Blvd. Right on SBB to Main Street and make a left (through 
Morro Bay State Park). Once through downtown Morro Bay, we go left to the monolithic Morro Rock for photo ops. 

Then it's back the way we come, ending at chargers of Home Depot on 1551 Froom Ranch Way, San Luis Obispo.

I love my KIA Soul EV, but dang, gotta hand it to Nissan: what an absolutely amazing package they just supplied us with for National Drive Electric Week! Hats, USB fans, banner, carrying bags, mugs, and the coolest signs with which to demarcate our NDEW event route!!! W-O-W. Think I'm gonna buy a Leaf too! :) :)

(I hope you're watching all this, Doug Korthof! RIP)
