  National organizers and advocates . . .

  The Electric Auto Association (EAA) is the parent organization to TEVA and hundreds of
  other chapters across the United States. Founded in 1967, the EAA acts as a public source of
  information to communicate developments in electric vehicle technology, to encourage
  experimentation in the building of electric vehicles, to organize public exhibits and events
  of electric vehicles, and to educate the public on the progress and benefits of electric vehicle
  technology.

  A former EAA chapter, Plug In America is now a separate California-based non-profit
  organization that advocates for energy independence and clean air. Their roots date back to
  the early 2000s, when founding members went to extraordinary means to save then-current
  manufactured EVs from being crushed by the companies that made them. These efforts were
  famously documented in the 2006 film Who Killed The Electric Car?
 
  National Drive Electric Week, formerly National Plug In Day, is an annual event occurring each
  September that finds hundreds of cities across the United States and those in a growing number
  of foreign counties simultaneously presenting EV displays, parades, "ride 'n drives" and other
  free events designed to bring electric automobiles into the conscious of the general public.

  The EAA, Plug In America and the Sierra Club provide national coordination and guidance.
  But volunteers in each individual hosting city design activities to fit their specific locales.
  Tucson has been involved since the first one in 2011 and we referred to it locally for the first
  four years as Tucson Plugs In.


  Of local and regional interest . . .

  In addition to this web site, The Tucson Electric Vehicle Association (TEVA) maintains a
  Facebook page and, although not officially TEVA-affliated, the EV Tucson GoogleGroup
  finds many EV owners throughout the southern Arizona region in communication with each
  other.

  The Pima Association of Governments (PAG) manages the Tucson Clean Cities coalition:
  a voluntary program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that promotes the use of
  alternatives to petroleum and diesel fuels, which includes the use of EVs.

  In the retail commercial realm, Bob Oldfather has been a tireless supporter of EVs for many
  years. Most of his Bookman's Entertainment Exchange stores features Level 2 (240V AC)
  charging that is free to use, 24/7.

  Former TEVA president, Rush Dougherty, owns Tucson EV, which manufactures and sells a
  variety of electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) for home and consumer use, including
  J1772 plugs, related cabling and hardware.


  Online EV charger location tools . . .

  Anyone with an EV on the move will want to get to know PlugShare. It's the world’s biggest
  and most accurate public charging map. You’ll find over 140,000 public stations, including
  all major networks in North America, Europe and Asia. It’s also the world’s largest EV driver
  community. PlugShare users have contributed nearly 1,000,000 station reviews and photos
  to help drivers make the most informed charging decisions possible.


  Sources of EV news and information . . .

  Although not strictly limited to electric vehicle propulsion, Mike Millikin's Green Car Congress
  is one of the largest and most authoritative news sources for alternative fuel vehicle technology.
  Topics pertaining to Electric Vehicles and Batteries & Energy Storage are sorted accordingly.
 
  Charles Morris is the editor of Charged EV, which is another excellent source for EV news.
  They also produce a very nice printed publication previwing much of what can be found on
  their site.

  Also a cut above mainstream media sources when it comes to reliable EV information are
  specialty sites like Jay Cole's Inside EVs, Brad Berman's Plug In Cars, Steve Hanley's Gas2,
  Fred Lambert's Electrek and John Voelcker's Green Car Reports.

  Pedro Lima's Push EVs comes by way of Portugal and provides a Euro-centric perspective
  on electric cars that's often overlooked in U.S. based reporting and Zachary Shahan's
  Cleantechnica features regular electric car articles mixed in with the latest news on solar,
  wind and other renewable enegy topics.

  The Electric-Car-Insider is a comprehensive annually-updated printed directory of EVs
  that is published by Chris Allen in San Diego, California. Complete specifications and
  prices for each production EV is displayed for easy comparison. TEVA often has copies
  of the latest issue for sale at our public event for $5.95, or you can contact the publishers
  directly.

  One of the more unique approaches to electric car information we've come across is EVTV,
  or Electric Vehicle Television. Industry news is mixed together with a series of "how to"
  videos tailored to the home EV converter in long format (an hour or longer each) and
  produced in the manner of a TV talk show.


  EVs For Sale . . . 

  If you're interested in buying or selling an EV, Craigslist Tucson provides free listings.
  The above hyperlink is set to filter EVs exclusively and the user can set additional search
  parameters (privately owned or dealer vehicles only, etc.) if desired.

  Nationally, eBay Motors will let you know what's on the market. The hyperlink displayed
  here is set for their EV listings and the user can filter parameters of distance from any given
  city or zip code to localize the search, or to a specific make/model.

  Finally, the EV Tradin' Post is a site that caters specifically to the sale of homebuilt EV
  conversions, complete cars, partially completed projects and individual components.
