SEVA:EVents 2007 04 27 - PriusBlue attended the Franklin PUD's Alternative Energy Expo in Pasco, WA and attempted to help many bus loads of grade school students learn what a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is and why their parents should get one. Many of them thought it was "cool", and many others offered to buy it for $5, which was mighty tempting ;)

Blue and some Wind Power
After the show Ryan and Blue took a side trip to check out the PUD's nine canyon road wind farm with it's many 60 meter (200 foot) 1330 kW turbines, each produces enough electric power for about 30,000 PHEV miles each day (1330 kW * 24 hours * 0.32 annual yield * 3 miles per kWh).
