Flathead Electric Co-op to hold Virtual EV Day

October 1 Virtual EV Day

In recognition of National Drive Electric Week, Flathead Electric Cooperative (FEC) is holding Virtual Electric Vehicle (EV) Day on October 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The free online event is open to the public and will feature a panel of EV owners and experts, each offering unique perspectives. The panel will be moderated by the Co-op’s Communication and Marketing Supervisor Katie Pfennigs, and attendees will have a chance to ask questions of the panelists:

Wade Harris who will offer an early adopter perspective. One of Flathead Electric Co-op’s EV champions, Wade has been driving plug-in electric cars since 2012. A Research Analyst by trade, he offers an in-depth look at the cost savings and other impacts of electric vehicles for our community, EV owners, and for the electrical industry.

Cory and Meredith Coopman will offer a family perspective. This busy family of four traded their Ford Expedition for a Tesla Model 3 two years ago. They will discuss how an electric vehicle fits into their day-to-day life with active ten and twelve-year-old sons, transporting them to and from sporting events and family vacations around the state and beyond.

Neal Ullman will offer a state perspective. Neal is an Energy Resource Professional in the Montana Department of Environmental Quality. His primary focus is on clean transportation, working on both the Diesel Emission Reduction Act and to distribute Volkswagen Settlement Funds to develop EV charging infrastructure and clean vehicle deployment across Montana.

Attendees will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a $200 Flathead Electric bill credit and two weeks with an EV. (To drive the electric vehicle, the winner must be a member of Flathead Electric Co-op with a valid driver’s license, proof of auto insurance and be age 21 or over.)
