rEV UP! – An Introduction to Electric Vehicles

November 21 @ 7:00 pm PST

RevUP Poster

Curious about electric cars?

Have questions, need answers about EVs?

Want to find out more about rebates, tax credits, and other savings?

Attend a rEV Up! Workshop

This free informational workshop is led by experienced EV owners, and is designed to cover the basic information you need to decide whether driving an electric car is for you. The workshop covers topics such as:

  • Benefits of owning an EV
  • Key considerations in shopping for an EV
  • Range, batteries, and charging
  • Financial incentives

Transitioning to electric vehicles will reduce local air pollution, significantly lower emissions of carbon dioxide, and often save money for local residents. This workshop is presented by the Emerald Valley Electric Vehicle Association, a local chapter of the national Electric Vehicle Association whose members are excited about the future of EVs. They are supported by many municipal, utility, and nonprofit partners who share an enthusiasm for reducing pollution and saving money for our local residents!

LRAPA monitors air quality throughout Lane County with eight regulatory-grade monitors and over 90 commercial-grade air sensors. Air Quality Index values are updated hourly.

Find the current air quality, look up the closest monitor to you, and learn more about the Air Quality Index (AQI) on the Current Air Quality Page.

LRAPA regulates the burning of wood and yard debris, known as “outdoor burning,” in Lane County. LRAPA also enforces home wood heating – such as fireplaces and wood stoves – opacity ordinances for the cities of Eugene, Springfield and Oakridge.

Seasonal and daily restrictions can exist for both forms of burning. Check to see if there are any active burning curtailments in effect on the burning restrictions webpage.

LRAPA is responsible for issuing air permits to commercial and industrial operations with emissions above a certain threshold. Check to see if your business needs a permit by following our 5-step guide on our Permitting Overview webpage.

Asbestos is the name of a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are heat-resistant, strong and extremely durable. Asbestos has historically been used in over 4,000 building products because of these properties.

Asbestos can cause lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. There is no safe level of exposure to friable asbestos.

LRAPA regularly solicits public comment on proposed agency actions such as rule changes, proposed air permits, and the agency’s annual budget. LRAPA also hosts monthly Board of Director and Citizen Advisory Committee meetings.

Learn more about these public comment window and public meetings on our News, Notices & Public Calendar webpage.

The physical environment is a crucial component of any individual’s health and well-being.  Every community needs access to safe air, land and water.  LRAPA has curated together a collation of topics commonly asked about by the community to provide information, important details, and connect interested community members with resources.

Explore the many topics of information on our Community Center webpage.

LRAPA is the local air authority responsible for monitoring Lane County’s air and administering programs that protect and improve air quality. LRAPA was founded in 1968 as an intergovernmental agreement between the cities of Springfield and Eugene. Today’s intergovernmental agreement includes Lane County and the cities of Cottage Grove, Eugene, Oakridge, and Springfield.
