National Drive Electric Week
Sep 13, 2015
|Day:||Sunday, September 13, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
This was an awesome day. The EV caravan had a dozen cars driving from Ventura to Ojai and turned a few heads. Driving through the Monterey Shale oil fields with jack pumps working was meaningful. It would be good to have more people on the streets.
The Ojai gathering at the Center for Spiritual Living was wonderful thanks to so many people doing their part so well. We had Six EVs on one side and up to three on the other side of the main drag - Ojai Ave. Signs in the windows and large signs announcing the EVs got the 2-300 vehicles driving by at low speeds to notice the EVs. The brand new tesla in the driveway turned a few heads as well.
We had 30 or more EV owners roaming about - see photo - and another 30-50 people came to look and talk to the drivers. Tesla sent two people from Santa Barbara with a vehicle and gave test drives. The BMW I3 and Ford Focus owners took people out as well.
The organizing time was minimal thanks to great people and thousands of hours sent or ten years.
