Expression of Interest: Salt Spring Island EV Jamboree
June 22 - June 24
Salt Spring Island is located off the coast of the South West corner of British Columbia, Canada, between Vancouver and Victoria. It is the central island of a five island group, rated one of the top 52 destinations to visit according to the New York times (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/07/travel/places-to-visit.html). It is the core location for the Provincial and Federal Green parties of Canada.
It also is home to the highest density of electric cars (by population) in North America (138 over a population of 10,500). Our island is passionate about electric transportation. We proudly calculate our fleet GHG reductions and reduction in gasoline usage (over 150,000 litres per year).
Our island has the first green certified tourism in Canada. We are a rural mountainous environment supporting sailing, golfing, hiking, 3 wineries, 2 cideries, brewery, disk golf, kayaking, hiking and biking. We also have hotels and campgrounds and over 100 B&B’s. The community is a destination for yoga, meditation and is a strong supporter of the arts, theatre and organic gardening.
