Finally -- my glancing at the usually boring PGE Home Connections email blah-blah-blah paid off. Nissan Leaf owners that we are, I was curious to read "Cost savings drive buyers to EV's." (electric vehicles)
That led me on to a You Tube video of the flash mob excitement when charging stations opened up on Portland State University's Electric Avenue: "a street dedicated to showcasing electric transportation technology — thanks to a unique partnership between the university, PGE and the city of Portland."
Cool. Nice dancing to an entirely predictable song.
Funny... nothing like that happened when the City of Salem had some EV charging stations installed in downtown parking areas. Could it be that Salem is, gasp!, less excitingly, energetically green than Portland? (Yeah, it sure could be.)
