You Want to Go To These EV-ents! I Hope You Can!

Seven Springs PA | Seven Springs Mountain Resort | Sept. 20-22

777 Waterwheel Drive
Seven Springs, Pa. 15622

Read more about the Mother Earth News Fair here.  This is a BIG event with dozens of speakers on sustainability topics.  (I am so excited that my hero Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm, author of Confessions of a Lunatic Farmer and Everything I Want to Do is Illegal, is going to be there!)  Congratulations to Jon & Bonnie from Three Rivers EVA for attracting numerous EV's to the East Coast Electric Vehicle Round Up and ensuring that there was programming about sustainable transportation at the Fair. 

I'll be giving my talk on the history & advantages of EV's at 10, 1, and 4 pm both Saturday & Sunday (location: Festival Hall Parking Lot).  There will also be EV owner panels at 10:30 & 2:30 on both days -- an interactive discussion giving the opportunity to hear real-world experiences of driving electric. 

The Frenchtown Green Fair's alt-fuel vehicle display is now an official National Plug In Day event!  Yippee!  Click on the Fair logo for more information about the Fair itself, or the NPID logo to go to our page on the national website.  I am totally psyched because both John Yecker & Brandon Hollinger are coming all the way from Lancaster PA to show their cars.  Thanks guys -- I can't wait to see you!  Our converted EV's will be joined by production models including the Nissan Leaf and an electric Smart Car. 

For those who want to see a LOT of production EV's in one place AND take advantage of ride-and-drive opportunities, look no farther than the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 29.  Michael Craner, pioneer Tesla Roadster owner and veteran of the 2009 Renew America Roadtrip (a 100% electric drive from coast-to-coast), has organized an afternoon full of informative fun from 1 - 4 in celebration of National Plug in Day.  EV's on display will include the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Roadster & Model S, the new Toyota RAV-4, Chevy Spark and Ford Focus Electric, and the Tesla Science Foundation (an organization for which we at BCR harbor a great fondness) will be among the presenters.
