It's Colorado Rides Electric Day -- who knew? Designed to ride shotgun to the World Renewable Energy Forum now at the Colorado Convention Center, the celebration includes a two-day Electric Avenue electric car expo that's free and open to the public from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Representatives of charging station manufacturers as well as resources for EV owners will be on hand; there will be demos of the latest EVs nearby at 15th and California streets. And, of course, food and drink will be available.
And tonight, the American Lung Association and Denver Metro Clean Cities are hosting a screening of the documentary Revenge of the Electric Car.
A sequel to the sobering Who Killed the Electric Car?, which detailed how car manufacturers put the kibosh on researching new technologies in the freewheeling '90s, Revenge tells the other side of the story -- how in the new century, EVs are revving up. See Revenge at 6:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel for a $10 donation. For more information, visit Electric Ride Colorado online.
A similar set of events is also scheduled for tomorrow in Boulder; find details at the Northern Colorado Clean Cities website.
