| September 21, 2022 1:00 AM

Interested in speaking with local Electric Vehicle (EV) owners, enthusiasts and experts to learn more about the electric cars and trucks that are increasingly visible in the Flathead Valley? Do you have questions about purchasing an EV or preparing your home to charge an EV? Would you like to take an EV for a test drive?

In recognition of National Drive Electric Week, Flathead Electric Cooperative invites the public to Electric Vehicle (EV) Day on Sept. 29, 2022. Co-op staff, local EV owners and representatives from car dealerships will be on hand to answer questions. EV test drives will be available from local dealerships and the Co-op, which owns a few EVs for research and development purposes. To test drive, you must be a member of Flathead Electric Cooperative, hold a valid driver’s license, have proof of auto insurance and be age 21 or over.

EV Day test drive models may include:

· 2022 Ford Lightning

· 2021 Tesla Model Y

· 2016 Chevrolet Bolt

Flathead Electric Cooperative’s EV Day is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Flathead County Fairgrounds, Trade Center Building. Themed “save your gas for the grill,” the event includes a free cookout lunch starting at 11 a.m. This event is free and open to the public. Door prizes include a $200 electric bill credit for members of Flathead Electric Cooperative and an e-bike rental. Pre-registration is encouraged at
