Now why is it that Tucson has all these cool events?

I know ASU has a solar race team but I think they had to return the beer vat chassis back to Four Peaks Brewery for the new summer brewing season.

Seriously, is this a governmental sponsored event from your House Rep?

Carlos, my U.S. Congress Representative, Gabrielle Giffords, has been a big supporter of solar energy. She wants to make Tucson the Solar Capital of the U.S.

Go to her website: http://giffords.house.gov/legis/solar-energy.shtml

Then click on the "Events" icon on the right. This is the event I posted.

KVOA posted their story and video about the ECOtality announcement of chargers coming to Tucson. They didn't even show the map of the charging stations though. One man talks about a charger adapter he has for sale for older electric vehicles.

Tucson people,

The "drive electric tour" opened up for reservations today for December 10, 11, and 12.

Fourth Avenue Street Fair can get very crowded, so earlier is probably better.

I know I'm almost the only one who posts on this thread and may be the only one who reads it, but I have news . . . .

My PD called about an hour ago to confirm that my LEAF will be delivered in March. Also, besides the general manager of the dealership who ordered a LEAF, I will be their first delivery from that dealership. Since there are only two dealerships in Tucson - I should be one of the first in town. Woo Hoo!!

He had no date in March, but wanted me to know that I am at the top of their list. So Tucson will finally get some deliveries in March. I know I received my RAQ after others that were moved to April, but like some have said, the location seems to play a part in the delivery schedule too.

Happy day!!

Congrats Rich! Some of us Phoenix people do read the Tucson area as well...

I passed the 3 week mark of ownership this past weekend, along with the 1000 mile mark. The car is just great and was worth the wait.

Yup, there are 'many' of us Phoenix folks who watch your postings.

I will be getting my LEAF in April (my EVSE in late March, and my PV in early March).

I am really excited to be a soon to be owner of this fantastic vehicle.

I saw my FIRST Tucson LEAF on the road this morning. I was on my way to work at about 7:10 am on Sunrise near La Paloma Resort. Lately I've been noticing other vehicles that are about the size of the LEAF, just to check out their size. I saw a red car coming towards me and thought, "That looks about the size of a LEAF." Then I realized, "It is a LEAF!!! " WOW! It was beautiful and very shiny!!! I think it belongs to the financial planner, Doug something, that was featured in the AZ Daily Star last Friday. I think his office is near there.

Soon, very soon, my Blue Ocean LEAF will be cruising down the same road.

Blink charger will be installed tomorrow afternoon. Almost, there.
