The event was featured on the local nightly news (Channel KVEW-42, ABC affiliate). More than 20 EV drivers supported the event by describing their vehicles, answering questions and offering rides or even test-drives to those interested. The support was overwhelming by the local EV drivers, but even more impressive was the interest from the public. Several people came out specifically for the opportunity to learn more about what models were available and talk to EV drivers before making their first EV purchase.
Energy Northwest and the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Transportation Alliance (EVITA) are organizing and hosting a Drive Electric Earth Day event at Kennewick's fast charging station located at the Southridge Sports and Events Complex, 2901 Southridge Boulevard, Kennewick.
The event will include the opportunity to see plug-in electric vehicles and learn more about how they operate, what it's like to drive them, and where to find publicly available charging stations. Representatives from Energy Northwest, Tri-Cities area utilities, the Mid-Columbia Electric Vehicle Association and other EV drivers will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about electric vehicles is invited to attend this event.
