  • Electrify Your Ride
    • The future of vehicles is electric. Whether you already own an EV, are considering one, or have hesitations, learn about the options! What is the cost comparison long-term? What about horsepower? And what about those batteries? Featuring Jim Jensen, WSU Energy Program; and Bill Trueit, Snohomish County Electric Vehicle Association.
  • Home Energy Efficiency
    • We’ve been there: an appliance breaks and you’re forced to make a lot of decisions very quickly. Join us to learn about appliance efficiency and clean energy sources before you’re in a rush! Featuring Brian Stewart, cofounder of Electrify Now.
  • Demystifying Recycling
    • Recycling can be confusing. Between policy changes the past several years to rules varying from place to place, it can be hard to understand. Join us and discover some of the driving forces for these rules. Whether you are new to the area or just want a refresher, this is a great opportunity to get a new perspective on recycling. Featuring Natalie Caulkins, recycling coordinator for Republic Services.
