Event Report

This year's event was held at the Franklin county PUD building in Pasco, WA which showcases solar panels, LED lighting, and educational energy-savings devices such as heat pump water heaters and programmable thermostats. Vic Hubbard and Todd Blackman of the PUD were in attendance and provided some interesting incites from the PUD perspective. Since Pasco is a smaller and blue collar or farming oriented working-class city than either Kennewick or Richland, the number of attendees was reduced from the previous year. Also, since we are a fairly small chapter of the EVA and can't seem to get volunteers interested in helping plan, organize, and arrange a larger event. In a sense of fairness, we will located next year's event in Kennewick (if a suitable location can be arranged). Also, I will update this page with a suitable photo when I get a chance to download one.
