There will be two workshops on Electric Vehicles this year!! 

Electric Vehicles: Save Money with Sustainable Driving 
Sunday 11:00-11:50 am 

Curious about whether an electric vehicle is right for you? We will discuss why electric vehicles are not only a friend to your wallet, but also a clean and safe alternative to gas-powered vehicles. Learn about purchase prices, federal and state tax rebates, and low operating and maintenance cost of EVs. Also learn about why Northern Colorado is one of the best places to drive electric!

Electric Vehicle Discussion, followed by a hands-on review of an Electric Car Conversion

Sunday 3-5 pm

Gain the knowledge to consider performing your own electronic vehicle conversion in this two part hands-on workshop.  Starting with a classroom session, attendees will learn basic principles of EV conversions, EV component selection, cost and safety considerations and online resources.  Then, we will do an in-depth hands-on review of a 1969 VW Beetle that has been converted to electric power from 4-5 pm.
