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.
