Plug-In North Central Washington is focused on facilitating a shift to locally produced energy. Douglas County has the lowest electrical cost in the nation, we produce it with people who live here, it is sustainable, cheap and clean. So, why not use electricity to power our automobiles? “Not enough range on a charge”, “no place to charge” and “it’s a liberal’s idea” seem to be the most voiced objections. While we cannot do much about the political opinion we can counter the other two.
Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 3rd at The Highway 2 Brew in Waterville, you can look at electric drive vehicles and talk to the owners about what it is actually like to drive an EV in central Washington. Plug-In NCW expects to have EVs from Chevrolet, Nissan and Tesla on hand. This is a free EVent and all the presenters are volunteers. The only thing we are “selling” is enthusiasm. Bring a few dollars and buy a coffee drink and sandwich while you visit with us; I know the Highway 2 Brew will appreciate the business! I am confident that you will enjoy the experience.
