Kids! Take OPALCO Island Way elec­tric jeep for a spin! — Con­tributed photo

Test dri­ve an EV, ride an elec­tric bike, check out elec­tric gar­den tools and an elec­tric UTV! Free hot dogs and pop­corn, great Island Way swag – and small kids can take the Island Way elec­tric jeep for spin (with parental super­vi­sion). EV deal­ers will have the Ford Mach‑E and VW ID‑4 on hand, as well as used EVs from our local Island eCars deal­er­ship avail­able for test drives.

Already made the switch? Bring your own EV to show and tell! Look­ing to buy a used EV? Take advan­tage of the EV Hap­py Deal (while grant funds last) and get a FREE EV charg­er installed, plus OPALCO will pay your tab fees and taxes.

It’s all hap­pen­ing August 5th at 4:30 pm, at the OPALCO East­sound Park­ing Lot. Com­ing from anoth­er island? No prob­lem! Catch the big whale bus at the fer­ry land­ing and let the dri­ver know you’re head­ed to the EV Jam­boree – OPALCO will pick up your ride.

Be sure to sign in to be entered in the Island Way raf­fle! 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 a Green­works elec­tric lawn­mow­er and ten shares of the 2021 Com­mu­ni­ty Solar Project. The two win­ning names will be drawn on Octo­ber 1st.
