Going to car shows helps us spread the word and meet new people. One of our folks met our latest member, Paul Karagas , here's what he tells me:
I saw some of your club member's Tesla S cars at the First Saturday auto show in the Springs earlier today, where I talked a bit with others about the Tesla cars and EVs in general. I have a silver 2012 Chevy Volt that gets it's juice from a rooftop solar array on my house in Pueblo. Sometimes I have to fill it with dino-juice when I drive to Denver, the mountains and a return trip to Pueblo from Colorado Springs, but I rarely run the ICE while driving in and around Pueblo. I became interested in electric vehicles when I bought my first electric bicycle over 10 years ago and still use one quite frequently, along with my regular bicycle. Like my Volt, I have considered an ebike to be a hybrid vehicle, only with 2 wheels :-)
I have made a few EV believers by introducing some friends and family members to my Chevy Volt. Hopefully some of them will choose an EV for their next vehicle! Looking forward to meeting some other members and share everything EV!
