Plug-in electric vehicle drivers, supporters and intrigued local residents are invited to attend an event at Flathead Electric Cooperative’s Kalispell headquarters from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, to highlight the benefits, cost savings and fun provided by electric cars, as part of National Drive Electric Week.
