Thank you all for joining us on our road trip to Harbor Inn yesterday! I think we're going to call the official count fifteen cars.

Sulphur Springs City Council Considers Tesla Supercharger

cf42450ee1cbb3d8127c208a1534a0f7

Anyone interested in a road trip Tuesday evening?

A downtown parking facility with 74 stalls, an agreement with Tesla Motor Inc for a supercharger in the 300 block of Tomlinson, and contracts for a fuel farm and for a waterline on Bill Bradford Road are just some of the items on the agenda for the Sulphur Springs City Council Tuesday, January 5th at 7 p.m., in the Council Room at 201 North Davis Street.

7. Discussion/action on a motion to approve a proposed agreement with Tesla Motors Inc. to locate a supercharger in the 300 block of Tomlinson Street.

Perhaps it will be helpful to have some regional owners speak to the benefits a Supercharger would bring to Sulphur Springs... :D

And the results from the City Council meeting:

The council approved a proposed parking improvement along Main, Davis, and Tomlinson Streets that would provide 74 parking stalls at a cost of $300,000. This would allow at least an additional 30 parking spaces for the downtown area. Included in the parking area will be an 8 stall charging station for Tesla Motors. The Tesla charging station was also approved by the council Tuesday following statements made by two out of town individuals who desire to have increased charging opportunities for their travels to Sulphur Springs and beyond and by one downtown business owner who owns a Tesla auto. The charger will be located in the 300 block of Tomlinson.

Toys for Tots: Invasion of the Teslas

Simon Malls is going to block off the east parking lot for us (by the Chademo & L2 chargers) and we're going to try to set an EV record for North Texas (shouldn't be hard). Nissan & maybe others will be offering rides, and given the heavy foot traffic at Grapevine Mills on Saturdays, we will be able to introduce lots of people to EVs!

National Drive Electric Week (Oklahoma City) - 2015

Oklahoma City Drive Electric Event was held on September 12, 2015 from noon-4:00 PM in The Paseo Arts District. The weather was absolutely perfect, clear Oklahoma skies, high 70's, light breeze. 

32 vehicles came out: 6 Teslas, lots of Leafs (including mine), 3 BMWs, several Volts, a Ford Focus, 2 motorcycles (a Zero, and a custom built racing cycle). 

Tons of test ride/drives were given. My inexpert estimate is that we had 150+ visitors, not counting the nearly 50 volunteers who brought vehicles or otherwise helped out. 

Highlights: 

- Mayor Mick Cornett proclaimed 9/12-20 Drive Electric Week in OKC. 

- OG&E, our electric service provider, was generous! They set a meter with a 240 V service at no cost, and brought EVs to show and volunteers to help. 

- The OKC EV fleet manager came to talk about their vehicles and infrastructure efforts.
