Have Mayor Sam Adams and Multnomah County's Jeff Cogan been invited to
Portland's Plug In Day?  They're both ardent EV supporters.

Hi everyone. As you probably know, next Sunday is National Plug In Day,
which will be celebrated in 60+ cities nationwide. The  Electric Auto
Association (and Plug In America, Sierra Club, and lots of other groups
taking part) are really excited to turn out thousands of people to these
events where they can learn about the many benefits of electric cars. At
some events, there will even be test-rides, solar-powered charging stations,
and mayoral proclamations!

I hope you'll register for an event near you (and you might even win an
iPad). See the blog post below from my colleague Ann and I giving you a
teaser about all the events coming up. It was posted on Sierra Club's
Compass blog

For the last few weeks, we have been celebrating

the new vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions standards that
mark President Obama's biggest climate accomplishment yet. Tens of thousands
of Americans have sent letters to the White House thanking the president for
new policies that will ensure that automakers produce much more efficient
vehicles as well as cars that run on little or no oil at all. Now there's
another way to celebrate.

Sunday, September 23rd, is National Plug In Day

nt%2Fcommon%2Fpublic%2Findex%2Esjs%3Fdistributed%5Fevent%5FKEY%3D613> , a
nationwide celebration of electric vehicles (EVs). By turning their back on
the pump, oil spills, and tailpipe emissions, these vehicles are a huge step
toward moving America beyond oil. They are also a lot of fun to drive. On
the 23rd, EV drivers and the EV-curious in over 60 cities across the country
will be taking part in free events to test drive EVs, kick the tires, and
check out solar-powered EV charging stations.

A switch to EVs is an important part of a future with greener transportation
choices, domestic clean energy manufacturing jobs, and a healthier planet.
Every year, we burn roughly 121 billion gallons of oil in our passenger cars
and trucks -- and even after taking into account the electricity used to
charge EVs, these are almost always the cleanest cars around

and will only get cleaner as we shift to more renewable sources of power.
You can't say that about a gasoline-powered vehicle! 
  <http://www.electricauto.org/resource/resmgr/images/plug.jpg> The Plug In
Day events feature electric cars, trucks, and motorcycles in electric car
parades, "tailpipe-free" tailgate parties, awards to leaders promoting
EV-readiness, the launch of new public EV charging stations, and other
educational events.

a Plug In Day proclamation where participants in that city will enjoy
test-rides, musical entertainment, and a silent and emission-free EV parade.
Whether or not you can make it to a Plug In Day event,you can take a moment
to sign a petition showing your governor that you support EV-readiness
programs in your state,
