Talk to people not paying much at the pump
Oconomowoc Utilities invites the public to an alternative fuel vehicle show from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the utility, 808 S. Worthington St.
National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey events. More than 160 events are being held nationwide to bring awareness to the benefits of alternative fuels. In Milwaukee, free educational events include a tour on a propane-powered bus to sites that have other alternative fuel vehicles (AFV).
Oconomowoc resident and owner of Evolution Marketing, Lisa Geason-Bauer, recently purchased an all-electric Nissan Leaf. She was invited by Jerry Medinger of the ALA to be part of the Milwaukee Odyssey tour. Being someone who is passionate about sustainable living, Geason-Bauer asked Medinger if Oconomowoc could be part of Wisconsin Odyssey events.
Representatives from conservation fields and owners of alternative fuel vehicles will be on hand with their vehicles to talk. Vehicles on display will include:
Neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV)
A home-built, electric motorcycle
An all-electric Nissan Leaf
A plug-in, hybridelectric Prius
An E85 fueled 2011 Chevy Impala
A CNG fueled 2009 Honda Civic GX
A hybridelectric Utility Bucket truck
