Who: Green Sanctuary Group and the Electric Automobile Association
What: Press Conference on new electric vehicle rapid recharging stations
When: Saturday, February 9, 2008, 11:00 a.m.
Where: Parking lot on the west side of the Beverly Unitarian Church (the

Members of the Press are invited to attend this press conference on
Saturday, February 8, 2008, at 11 a.m., in the parking lot of the
Beverly Unitarian Church, 10244 S. Longwood Dr., Chicago. Press kits
will be distributed and the duration of the briefing will be 30 minutes,
including question and answer time at the conclusion of the
presentation. Here is what you will see and hear about:

An electric automobile will be recharging at the new rapid recharging station, an attractive visual image.

Hear how inexpensive it is to recharge an all electric vehicle, or hybrid with plug-in capacity, so inexpensive that these “refills” are free, as a community service, part of the church’s ministry for Earth. Compare that with high gas prices.

Learn how this is the start of the local electric automobile association’s efforts to establish a network of rapid recharging stations around the Chicago area, to encourage and facilitate the use of electric vehicles in the Chicago area. This will help our nation’s struggle for energy independence, help reduce air pollution, and help in the effort to combat global warming.

Hear from Lt. Governor Patrick Quinn how this effort fits into Illinois’ efforts to encourage the use of alternative energy vehicles.
