Event Report

Merlyn Hough, LRAPA Director, invited folks to stop by for coffee and EV chats to celebrate National Drive Electric Week. Oregon State Representative Phil Barnhart dropped by with his 2012 Tesla Signature Model S which he has driven routinely between Eugene and Salem for the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Legislative Sessions. [Merlyn credits/blames Phil for pushing him and his wife Martha over the edge to go electric in September 2013.] Kristen Langham and Shelley Stephenson from the Eugene Water & Electric Board rolled out the latest EWEB program incentives for electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Lane Regional Air Protection Agency hosted the event, encouraged EV drivers to plug into the two Clipper Creek Level 2 workplace chargers, and provided displays and handouts on the West Coast Electric Highway including potential future charging locations in Oregon. Another LRAPA-EWEB event is planned for Friday, September 18th at 3-4pm at the same location, again with Representative Barnhart.
