Event Report

The highlight was 10 BEVs and 2 PHEV's in the same location, including two Tesla MS and one Roadster. Local event at the library. Lots of walk-ins over the course of the six hour event. No dignitaries or special events, just owners talking about their vehicles to the general public. Since I have no volunteer help, I'm pretty limited in what I can do. We didn't give test drives due to parking on the walkway in front of the library and concern for liability.

Event Description


Learn About the Many Benefits of Driving Electric
at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Dr
Saturday, September 19, 2015 • 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Driving Electric is more fun, more convenient, and less expensive than driving a gas car especially in the Mid-Columbia Region of SE Washington State, home of some of the world's best wineries.  Learn about what it's like to drive a plug-in electric vehicle from real owners (Tesla, Nissan, Chevy, Ford, BMW, Think!).

From I-182, take exit #5B North on Geo Wash Way. Left at Swift Blvd (at the Police & Fire Stations). The Library is at 955 Northgate Dr.  PHEVs will be parked on the sidewalk in front of the library.  Volunteers will direct you how to access this area. Other general public parking is in the normal library parking lot.  No on-site power but there are several J1772 stations in the Tri-Cities.
