Join us to drive the change!
MN Electric Vehicle Owners (MNEVO) provides a forum for Minnesota plug-in vehicle (BEV and PHEV) owners to connect, share their experiences and learn more about EV related topics. We meet every second month in various locations. Our membership and meetings are free and open to anyone who owns or is interested in shifting to drive electric. MN EV Owners is a chapter of the National Electric Auto Association.
MNEVOwners provides a forum to meet with EV owners, share your experiences, ask questions and just enjoy connecting with others. People shift to driving electric for many reasons, and it is good to learn from different viewpoints. Meetings are also a great place to see new vehicle makes and models.
New technologies, new vehicles and new ways to power your drive. There are so many new things constantly happening in this industry and many of them affect the ways we choose, charge and use our vehicles. We will have presentations and new discussion topics at each meeting.
As EV owners, we can make a difference by simply sharing our experiences with the general public and key stake-holders. Please see the calendar below for upcoming events and sign up for the ones that fit your schedule. You don't have to be an expert on all things EV, just share why and how you drive electric.
Our Next Meeting on Thursday 6/17 6:30-8:30PM:
This month we will have our first in person event for over a year. No, we will not meet at the ALAMN office this time, but outside in a park by Lake Phalen Picnic Pavilion in St Paul. So no Power Point presentations this time, just bring your own lawn chair. 😊
This month we will be joined by Russ Stark, Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Saint Paul and Tom Santori, Electric Vehicle Product Developer from Xcel Energy. They will tell us more about the EV Spot Network. The EV Spot is a project being developed by the City of Saint Paul, City of Minneapolis, HOURCAR, and Xcel Energy to create a network of electric vehicle charging hubs throughout the Twin Cities and make electric vehicles publicly available through a car-sharing service. https://www.stpaul.gov/departments/public-works/transportation-and-transit/ev-spot-network
