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.
- 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.
Thank you Alex Winslow and Sheila Davis Beuerlein for the wonderful evening at the Perot Museum!
We had about 30 S and 2 Roadsters come to the event. It was really very nice, and Perot people and Tesla owners alike were impressed / surprised by the turnout.
Congratulations to John Bourke on winning the Tesla gift bag courtesy of the Perot Museum!…
It seems like we have a lot of events one after another, but I don't control all of the dates. :)
Brian Kent from Negative Carbon Road Trip will be arriving in DFW on Tuesday and we are hosting a reception for him Tuesday evening in Southlake. Brian has been driving his LEAF around the country, with a goal to plant a tree in 48 states. …
