Electric vehicles have been a topic of conversation at Eau Claire Energy Cooperative for quite awhile now. According to Monica Obrycki, Chief Administrative Officer at ECEC, “We’ve found ourselves asking questions like how quickly will consumers adapt to electric vehicles? And, how can our Cooperative be ready for EVs and be a go-to resource for our member-consumers?
Set for Saturday April 27, co-op members and the public are invited to drive and learn about electric vehicles at a special event to be held at the Chippewa Valley Technical College’s Energy Education Center on the west side of Eau Claire. From registration at 8:00am, to breakout sessions featuring Electric Vehicles 101, maintenance, a panel of EV owners and the future of EVs, it will be an opportunity for the public to learn what all the buzz is about regarding EVs. Displays and breakout sessions will be available from 9:00am – 1:00pm. This can be especially helpful for people who have never been close to an EV. It’s a FREE day to talk with current EV owners and those people who work in the industry. No need to register ahead of time. Be sure to bring your driver’s license if you want to drive an EV.
According to Adam Wehling Dean of Agriculture, Energy and Transportation at CVTC, “Automobiles, lawn and garden equipment and powersports are a few industry areas rapidly developing electric equipment. With homeowners and businesses using these items daily, the opportunity to grow this market sector is huge.” CVTC is co-sponsoring this event so the public can learn about and ask questions about the new electric equipment that’s available.
