Have you thought about getting an electric vehicle (EV)?  Would you like to learn more from an expert, ask questions and hear what the dealers have to say about their EVs? 

Electric vehicles are becoming a common sight on our roads and BCSEA is geared towards helping British Columbians make the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable future by switching to fuel-free vehicles. We are excited to provide the community with an informative event that can become a springboard towards a flourishing EV market here in Kamloops and hope you will choose to be a part of it.

The Kamloops Chapter of the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) is pleased to invite you to our event “EVs in Kamloops - What You Need to Know.” 

BCSEA members and the public are invited to attend.  Registration is limited to the first 70 people who register.

When: Saturday June 9, 11am to 1:30pm 

What: We’ll start indoors with a talk by Brock Nanson at 11:00.  Brock is an engineer, has two EVs and is vice-president of the Tesla Owners Club of BC. He has spoken on this topic for Emotive, City of Kamloops and BCSEA in the past. Dealers may also speak briefly about their EVs. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask your questions. 

After the talks, we’ll go outside to view the EVs in the parking lot adjacent to the building, chat with the dealers and schedule test drives.  We’re including only plug-in electric vehicles, not hybrids.

Cost: Free, but you must register to attend.

Registration:  Click here to register.

Where: Thompson Rivers University, Arts & Education Building, room 108 (AE108). EVs will be on display in nearby parking lot H.  See campus map and note the road closures.  Parking is free on weekends. 

Vehicles: We're delighted to show you the Nissan Leaf (River City Nissan), the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive (Mercedes Benz Kamloops) and several privately-owned electric vehicles including at least one Tesla.

Thank you to our sponsor, the TRU Sustainability Office, and to the dealers who are bringing their EVs to the event!
