Event ReportThis year, we held a virtual lunch and learn for anyone interested in electric vehicles. It was moderated by Adriane Jaynes, the Tulsa Area Clean Cities coordinator. She presented an EV 101 presentation, an introduction to different types of plug-in vehicles, charging, and benefits of driving electric. Then we heard from Dirk Spiers, the founder and CEO of Spiers New Technologies, an EV battery recycling and refurbishing company based in Oklahoma City, who presented on battery technology. Finally, we had a panel of EV drivers based in Tulsa, and did an open ended Q&A with participants. This discussed an array of topics from range anxiety, at home charging, weather impacts on range, maintenance and electricity costs, etc.
Curious about electric cars? As a part of National Drive Electric Week, this lunch and learn webinar hosted by Tulsa Area Clean Cities and the Oklahoma EV Coalition will cover the basics of EVs, EV ownership, charging availability in Oklahoma, and have a panel of EV owners from Oklahoma who can answer all your questions about owning and driving EVs in Oklahoma!
