Event Report

Our objective was to educate people in southeastern Idaho about EVs, create opportunities for answering EV related questions and to promote the sponsoring organizations:  Idaho Conservation League, Portneuf Resource Council (PRC), Idaho Power (IPC), and Idaho State University.  National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) provided an internet web site that gave event information and participant registration. There was a nice diversity of plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles which clearly demonstrated they are a viable transportation option. The EV owners talked to 250 to 300 people over the course of five hours.  They answered questions concerning range anxiety, price, cost of and time to charge, as well as their experience driving and maintaining their electric vehicle.  In addition, a representative from the Office of Energy and Mineral Resources and SemaConnect, a charging station installer, were also there.
