Where we’re going, we don’t need gas…

Join Minnkota Power Cooperative and Nodak Electric Cooperative on August 8 for an evening of electric vehicles (EVs), food trucks, and a showing of Back to the Future under the stars.

Plugged In to the Future will feature a lineup of local EV owners, the state’s first all-electric school bus, an EV ride-along, an electric bike demo, local dealership representatives, information about how you can get started with electric transportation of your own and much more. 

If you already have an EV, make sure you bring it! We’ll have some charging stations available.

While you’re here, enjoy tasty grub from local food truck favorites and stick around for an outdoor showing of Back to the Future on the big screen. Please bring a chair, or be one of the first to pull up a vehicle for a drive-in experience.

Best of all – IT'S ALL FREE.

Check back in with our page as we unveil more details about the event – the food, the features and the fun. We’re excited to energize your drive!
