DrivEV Weekend 2019 - Becky Kerr
To celebrate National Co-op Month in October, we offered members the chance to enter a drawing to take home (or to the road) the co-op’s Bolt EV, the first affordable all-electric car to offer an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a single charge.
In the first weekend in November (because the car was in for repairs the 2nd weekend of October), Becky Kerr drove the car 114 miles, attending the SCC Drama Craft/Vendor Fair held at St. Croix Central Elementary School in Roberts, shopping in Hudson and other errands.
“It had more get up and go than I expected,” Becky said. “Thanks for the experience of driving an electric car! I had fun!”
St. Croix Electric Cooperative offers a rebate on charging stations and a special EV charging rate. Contact Director Member Services Jeff Wahlquist for more information – firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-796-5612.
