This Month's Meeting:

Displaying EVs - July 4th Parade Planning

Saturday, June 24, 2017

(4th Saturday) 11 am to 12 noon (only 1 hour of your time).
Meeting Location: Nob Hill Foods, Broadway & Blanding Aves, 2531 Blanding Ave, Alameda, CA
Visitors welcome, open to the public.

 

 

Come join us this month for lunch and a chance to prepare our entry in Alameda’s annual July 4th Parade. We have been participating since 2002 in the largest and longest Independence Day parade west of the Mississippi. This year we hope to feature as much diversity of EVs as our members and friends are willing to drive. We'd like as many as possible to participate as this parade which draws over 20,000 spectators.

 

There’s a lot of production EVs on the roads:

       BMW I3 (CCS)

       Chevy Spart, Bolt (CCS)

       Fiat 500E

       Ford Focus Electric (CCS)

       Honda Fit EV (CHAdeMO)

       Kia Soul EV (CCS)

       Mercedes B250e

       Mitsubishi i-MiEV (CHAdeMO)

       Nissan Leaf (CHAdeMO)

       Smart ED

       Tesla Roadster, Model S Sedan, Model X SUV (Tesla)

       Toyota RAV4 EV

       VW E-Golf (CCS)

       And more

 

For our lunch gathering site, we are meeting at the newest location of fast charging stations in Alameda. Just like at the other end of Alameda Island, at Alameda Municipal Power, here are 2 DC fast charge stations. Both locations have the CHAdeMO and CCS connections. These will only charge up newer cars with the fast charge ports, like Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt, etc. The Level-3 charges up at 50+ kW rather than the 6 kW rate of the typical home or public Level-2 connection.

 

Come grab some food at one of the many offerings here, and sit with us in the shade at the charging stations so we can see some EVs out by the street and have a chance to catch up before our big parade event. Hope to see you there.
