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 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 11/19 6:30-8:30PM:
MN EV Owners Meeting, Thursday, November 19, 6:30-8:30PM
Xcel Energy has been working on a variety of EV charging programs and they are preparing to launch their new residential EV rate in Minnesota. Alisa Sobczak and Mathias Bell from Xcel will share more information about all these programs and new EV rates.
In past years I have attended the LA Auto Show at the end of November and brought back a ton of photos and information about the new vehicles to our meeting. That will not happen this year, but we can still talk about the market. I will share some perspectives on EV market developments and we can talk about what we expect to see happening in 2021.
6:30 -6:50 Opening and introductions.
6:50-7:50 Xcel Energy EV plans and programs, Alisa Sobczak and Mathias Bell, Xcel Energy
