At 4:30 p.m. Aug. 5 OPALCO will host an Electric Vehicle Jamboree at the OPALCO Eastsound parking lot.

The in-person workshop will introduce members to a variety of electric vehicles, giving those who already have an electric vehicle a chance for some show and tell and answer questions.

Members can test drive an electric vehicle with Island eCars, compare models and chat with experts. There will be e-bikes from Wildlife Cycles to try out, free hot dogs, Island Way swag, and activities for kids.

Orcas Power & Light Cooperative, or OPALCO, is the local member-owned cooperative electric utility, serving more than 11,400 members on 20 islands in San Juan County.  


Be sure to sign in to be entered in the Island Way raffle at the event. OPALCO’s Island Way campaign is here to help co-op members prepare for the energy future that is coming fast.

Throughout this year, OPALCO has been hosting a series of mostly virtual workshops to give members the tools they’ll need to prepare their homes and businesses. 

OPALCO is raffling off prizes to members who participate in these Island Way workshops. Prizes include a Greenworks electric lawnmower and ten shares of the 2021 Community Solar Project.

OPALCO members will be entered to win with each session they attend, including the jamboree. The two winning names will be drawn on Oct. 1.
