If you’ve been thinking about buying an electric vehicle – or you’re just curious about the technology – you’re not alone. EV’s are becoming increasingly popular, and most manufacturers now offer one or more electric models.

Responding to growing demand, area clean-energy groups are hosting a series of free presentations in the coming weeks to get the EV-curious up to speed, while several Glenwood auto dealers will offer limited-time discounts on select EV models starting Aug. 1.

Garfield Clean Energy, CLEER (Clean Energy Economy for the Region) and Walking Mountains Sustainability are offering four Experience Electric workshops:

  • Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the Rifle Library, 5:30-7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 21 at the Glenwood Springs Library, 5:30-7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 28 at Carbondale’s Third Street Center, 5:30-7 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the Walking Mountains Sustainability Center in Avon, 5:30-7 p.m.

The workshops will enable participants to learn about EVs on the market today, find out about discounts and tax credits, understand how EV charging works and talk to experienced EV owners.

RSVPing is recommended by going to ExperienceElectric.eventbrite.com or by calling CLEER at 970-70409200.
