  • Upgrades to Eugene's downtown electric network continue

    You may have noticed construction this week on the corner of 7th and Pearl Street. That’s because crews replaced a corroded, aging vault with an innovative, new Voltek vault. The Voltek design allows for the new infrastructure to be built inside of the existing aging vault. We’re able to install the new vault while the cables are still energized, minimizing disruption to customers and traffic while cutting construction time in half.

My EV Story: Greg's Chevy Bolt

January 12, 2020

Man standing next to dark grey Chevy Bolt

I can't say enough positive things about my Chevy Bolt.

First of all, it's fast. The electric motor produces 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque and goes from zero to 60 in 6.5 seconds.

Range? Not a problem. The Bolt has an EPA-rated range of 238 miles, but since I drive 90% around town, I rarely drain the battery, and I am able to re-charge overnight with a standard three-prong 120-volt outlet.

And since I'm an engineer working in energy conservation, driving my Bolt lets me geek-out on electric car stuff like voltage and kilowatt-hours, while enjoying the peace of mind that I'm generating zero tailpipe emissions.I

'm still getting to know all the features-it's crazy when your car is smarter than you are! The 10-inch touch screen is fun, and Nine Inch Nails sounds great through the Bose sound system.

This is definitely the nicest car I've ever owned, and I can't imagine ever going back to a gasoline engine. The only "downside" to my Bolt is that my partner is always borrowing it!

Two thumbs up for my Chevy Bolt!
