**OCT 16: National Plug-in Day - /Los Alamos, NM

/*Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for first Commercial Plug-In Parking and 
Charging in Los Alamos County
3pm (exact time TBD) @ Metzger's Do It Best Hardware Store on State 
Route 4 in White Rock, NM 87544

 The NNMEVA  (Northern New Mexico Electric Vehicle Association) will be 
meeting at Metzgers Hardware in White Rock to participate in a ribbon 
cutting ceremony for Los Alamos County's first business Plug In Parking 
spot.  Dan Saxton, Manager of White Rock Metzger's, is arranging with 
the Chamber of Commerce to have a full blown ribbon cutting ceremony.

 FYI: This is not a full charging station with a Level II 220v SAE J1772 
charging station, costing $2K-10K.  It is, rather, a plain old "Level I" 
ordinary household socket that all plug in electric vehicles can - well 
- plug in to!  The Nissan Leaf, for example comes with an adapter cable 
that plugs into any household current.

"National Plug In Day, taking place on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2011, is an 
unprecedented nationwide observance drawing global attention to the 
environmental, economic and other benefits of plug-in electric vehicles 
through simultaneous events staged in at least twenty major cities 

"Plug <http://www.pluginamerica.org/> In America 
<http://www.pluginamerica.org/>, the Sierra Club 
<http://www.sierraclub.org/electric-vehicles/>, and the Electric Auto 
Association <http://www.electricauto.org/> are teaming up to plan for 
this effort, which will sound the bell through plug-in 
parades, tailpipe-free tailgate parties, test-drives and other 
grassroots activities."  For more information:

Association's photovoltaic classes!  They are opportunities:

solar contractor, or to more easily communicate with potential contractors.

In collaboration with Santa Fe Girls School, New Mexico Solar Energy 
Association (NMSEA) has scheduled its next */Photovoltaic Design/* and 
*/PV Design and Installation/* classes to start in two weeks.  The 
classes will be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico at Santa Fe Girls School.

November 5-6 (5 days, Fri-Sat-Sun-Sat-Sun; $725) to install a 2kW solar 
electric system at the school.
