  • Interested in owning an electric vehicle?
  • Want to help make the transition to fossil fuel-free living?

The Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Transportation Action Team, with participation by Corvallis-area electric vehicle (EV) owners and dealers, wants to help community members realize the benefits of going electric.
Come to the Benton County Event Center & Fairgrounds (South Parking Lot, off Reservoir Road) on Saturday, April 30, to see a variety of the latest all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, bikes, and scooters. This is your opportunity to talk with local EV owners and take a test ride. Also, learn about solar panels and EV charging at home.

“Accelerate the transition to electric vehicles” is the third highest action priority in the Buildings & Energy section of the Corvallis Climate Action Plan. If you’ve been thinking about making the transition to an EV, this is your chance to see how you can be part of the solution to climate change.
