This event is part of the city’s Climate Action Plan to motivate Lake Oswego residents to eliminate fossil fuel usage by shifting all of their energy needs to renewable electricity. This can include purchasing an electric vehicle (EV), replacing their space and water heaters with electric heat pumps, using an induction cook top, and installing rooftop solar panels or joining a community solar program
The EV portion of the event will have numerous dealers bringing their latest EVs for test drives along with local EV owners displaying their vehicle and available to share their ownership experiences.
We anticipate that we should be seeing residents and dealers displaying some of the recently introduced EVs such as the Rivian RIT truck, Ford F-150 electric truck, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Polestar 2 along with other popular models such as Ford Mustang Mach E, GM Bolt EUV, Volkswagen ID.4 Pro and Tesla Model Y.
In addition we will have a display of electric bikes and test drives in the Arcimoto Fun Utility Vehicle.
The home electrification portion of the event will feature presentations inside the Fellowship Hall on the usage and benefits of electric heat pumps, induction stoves and cooking, solar installations with battery storage along with information on how to electrify all of your landscaping equipment.
There will also be vendors with more information about each of these electrification options along with a display of the PGE Tiny Home exhibit showing how all of the elements work together.
There are currently 209 attendees registered.
