Guess who's promoting electric vehicles?

Whoever said electric vehicles are just a passing fad or a plaything of wealthy Hollywood types better check with the U.S. military.

The Department of Defense has a program to expand use of electric vehicles, and is involved in one of the largest vehicle-to-grid pilot projects in the world. The director of the program, Dr. Camron Gorguinpour, will discuss the program on Thursday, at a special event hosted by Drive Oregon, at Kell’s Irish Pub, 112 S.W. 2nd Ave., from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

His called is entitled Electric Vehicles in our Nation’s Military: An Inside Perspective.

Attendance is free for Drive Oregon members but costs $25 for others. Space is limited so register soon at: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/8504241415.
