Underground E-Mobility Show and screening of "Wherever You Want to Go"

Calling all Peds, Bikes, E-Bikes, E-Scooters, E-Motorcycles, Plug in Hybrids, Electric Cars, Segways and other e-mobility forms of transportation!

San Diego County and Encinitas in particular, have emerged as a national hot bed of innovation and adoption for Electric Vehicles and for Solar PV installations. San Diego leads the nation in both categories. In my professional role as a County of San Diego Planning Commissioner and the Hwy 101 Coordinator for the city of Encinitas that makes me a very very happy boy :)

The Cottonwood Creek film series featuring the BMW Documentary "Wherever You Want To Go" and the Underground E-Mobility Show has already attracted approximately 40 entries including Mini-Es, Teslas, Volts, Leafs, Toyota EV Rav 4s, regular custom bikes E-Bikes and E-Motorcycles, Home Built Ev's and a local Segway club not to mention the Coaster Train!

The Underground garage at Pacific Station has room for 250 cars/entries on two levels. This is a great event to bring your EV or to learn about E-Mobility from drivers and experts in muti modes of transportation. Plus you get to see a really cool film 'al freso' under the stars featuring three Mini-E Drivers, Tom, Todd and yours truly.

The event has already attracted the attention of the San Diego Union and The North County Times and several local papers and TV Stations.
