Get an electrical inspection!

From Dan Rosenblatt, one of our earliest members:

For those folks putting in a car charging circuit,  I strongly recommend a fully licensed electrician that obtains county permits triggering an official inspection.  My 100A line (for 80A charging) went in 3 years ago and was never inspected.  I had used an electrician recommended by Tesla.  The pictures that follow show the result.

OMG - an i-Pace is going to the show!

HOLY SMOKES FOLKS - I never thought I'd get to see one but at this Saturday's car show on Powers Blvd. in Colorado Springs a Jaguar i-Pace will be on display. You must contact the dealership for a test drive later that day, but there will be one at the First Saturday's Car Show. Seeing Jaguar's first all-electric vehicle would be worth the trip from anywhere. Thanks to our club member Chaz Clark for the notice.
Here's the official notice from Jaguar, courtesy of Chaz:
Usually we only get to see prototype vehicles on TV or in a magazine, but now, you have an exclusive chance to see one in person and drive it next week!
We would like to invite you to a very special, sneak peak of a prototype, pre-production version of the All-New 2019 Jaguar I-PACE, the first all-electric car from Jaguar. We will have the I-PACE at the First Saturday Car Show this Saturday, September 1, 2018. After the Car Show we will have the I-PACE at our dealership for exclusive test drives for our clients until Thursday, September 6th.
Please stop by Jaguar Colorado Springs between Saturday, September 1st and Thursday, September 6th, to test drive this exclusive vehicle.
This is a limited time event so don't wait or you'll miss out!

September is nigh!

The summer's not over and neither are car shows! We have a couple of new car events to share with you:

National Drive Electric Week as two events in September, I will be attending the Colorado Springs event as a registered volunteer. The Pueblo West event only has one club member registered so far (thanks, John Duprey!) so if you can make it to the Thursday event, that would be great.

National Drive Electric Week - Pueblo West, CO Thursday, September 13. 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Pueblo West Library, 298 S. Joe Martinez Blvd., Pueblo West, CO 81007

National Drive Electric Week - Colorado Springs, CO Saturday, September 15. University Village on North Nevada, Christy Sports Parking Lot, 5294 N Nevada Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80918, 11:00am to 3:00pm.
