Event Report


Katie Pfennigs Communications and Marketing Supervisor at Flathead Electric Co-op, was the Moderator for the day.  Katie is a non-EV owner with a desire to involve our virtual audience in a fascinating conversation between a bunch of interesting people.

Neal Ullman – one of three panelists, Neal will offered a state perspective. He is an Energy Resource Professional in the Montana Department of Environmental Quality. Neal’s primary focus is on clean transportation, working on both the Diesel Emission Reduction Act and to distribute Volkswagen Settlement Funds to develop EV charging infrastructure and clean vehicle deployment across Montana.

Cory and Meredith Coopman. The Coopmans will offered a family perspective. Their busy family of four traded their Ford Expedition for a Tesla Model 3 two years ago. They discussed how an electric vehicle fits into their day-to-day life with active ten and twelve-year-old sons, transporting them to and from sporting events and family vacations around the state and beyond.

Wade Harris offered an early adopter perspective. One of Flathead Electric Co-op’s EV champions, Wade has been driving plug-in electric cars since 2012. A Research Analyst by trade, he offers an in-depth look at the cost savings and other impacts of electric vehicles for our community, EV owners, and for the electrical industry.
