Denver area-based employees may want to check out the Denver Auto Show, running through this weekend at the Colorado Convention Center, where a Keep Electricity Affordable (KEA) booth is set up and fully staffed to engage and educate visitors about the potential threats to affordable electricity. Visitors to the booth also can get a look at Tri-State’s latest addition to its hybrid and plug-in electric vehicle fleet – the Chevy Volt.
KEA is an alliance of citizens and organizations in Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming that believes affordable electric power is an indispensable resource and is essential to families, businesses, communities and the economy.
Sponsors of this initiative include Tri-State, its 44 member systems and the rural electric statewide associations in Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming. This weekend at the show, the KEA team is encouraging visitors to sign up in support of the initiative’s efforts to raise awareness of threats to affordable electricity.
The Denver Auto Show is the region’s premier showcase of the newest model year import and domestic vehicles — including cars, vans, crossovers, hybrids, light trucks and SUVs. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for kids (ages 6-12) and children under 6 are admitted free of charge. Car show hours are noon to 10 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
