Salem City Club, a biweekly forum open to members and non-members, will meet Oct. 25 at the Willamette Heritage Center to learn about the push for more electric vehicles in Oregon.
In July, the Oregon legislature passed Senate Bill 1044, which requires the Oregon Department of Energy to monitor Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) adoption and recommend strategies to the Legislature to spur ZEV adoption.
Jessica Reichers, the technology and policy manager at the Oregon Department of Energy, will offer insight into the work being done now to prepare Oregonians for the transition to cleaner power transportation.
She will be joined by Joe Wachunas, a representative of Forth, a nonprofit in Portland, which seeks to advance electric, smart, and shared transportation through innovation and industry development.
The program will begin Friday, Oct. 25, at 12 p.m. at the Willamette Heritage Center at 1313 Mill Street St. SE. Registration fees are $10 for non-members. Lunch for members and non-members is $17 or $16 if payment is made with check or cash. Register online at SalemCityClub.com.
