Learn about the future of electric vehicles from two local experts at a seminar hosted by the Heartland Renewable Energy Society on Saturday, May 21.

Pugsley is an avid EV supporter and will share what he anticipates for the future of plug-in electric vehicles. Currently, he drives a Nissan Leaf and a Tesla Model S.  He also has a deposit on the Tesla Model 3. Pugsley belongs to the Mid-America Electric Auto Association and Plug-In America.  He will have his Tesla available in the parking lot for viewing.
