This Is National Drive Electric Week, With Several Front Range Events

[Published Sept. 18, 2014, in the Jeffco editions of the Denver Post's YourHub section and in five Jefferson County weekly newspapers]

Golden Real Estate has a reputation for being a brokerage which puts good corporate citizenship ahead of profit. Our real estate signs display two values statements by which we live. They are “Promoting and Modeling Environmental Responsibility” and “Hometown Service Delivered with Integrity.”

As an expression of those values statements, Golden Real Estate promotes solar power, weatherization, recycling of Styrofoam, and the driving of electric vehicles.  Every day you’ll see at least one or more electric vehicles (EV’s) in our parking lot.  We have a  240-volt EV charging station with two more being installed soon. Charging is free to all electric vehicle owners -- no purchase necessary!

Hosting one of five Front Range events during National Drive Electric Week is another expression of our commitment to leaving the planet a better place than we found it.  Our event will be held this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in our company parking lot at 17695 S. Golden Road.

Other Drive Electric Week events are being held in Ft. Collins, Longmont, Boulder, Littleton and Colorado Springs.  You can find out which electric cars will be at each location by visiting  At press time, 15 different EV’s are scheduled to be at our location.  The Littleton location is at Aspen Grove Shopping Center, where 27 EV’s are expected. Free ride-and-drives will be offered at both these locations,  Altogether, there are 148 events in 35 states this week.

There will also be vendor tents and hand-outs, and I’ll set up a big-screen TV to play a loop of educational videos including my favorite — a video showing how robots are used to assemble Tesla cars in the company’s Fremont, California, factory.

There is no better way to learn which EV is right for you than to speak with current EV owners and take a ride in their cars. There will be door prizes and refreshments.
