Ten Years After
Short Description: 
As of today, winter solstice 2012, I have been driving electric vehicles for ten straight years and generating the electricity for them from sunlight. When Zan and I bought that RAV4 EV we had no idea how it would change our lives, but change them it did.

Former Plug In America board member Alexandra Paul describes the process of rounding up hundreds of EVs for National Plug In Day's flagship event: history's biggest EV parade.

208 Alexandra Paul and her Chevrolet Volt, July 28, 2011I have a lifelong phobia of organizing get-togethers. I avoid anything more complicated than having my book club over for a potluck.

So what did I say when Zan Dubin Scott, Plug In America's Communications Director, asked me to recruit EVs for National Plug In Day’s Santa Monica parade?

I said yes, of course.

Did I mention she wanted to make it the biggest assembly of plug-in vehicles in the world?
