Chugach EV Charging Road Rally

Chugach Electric is celebrating the installation of the last of four public EV charging station with a road rally for EV drivers. Interested EV owners are asked to submit a photo of their vehicle charging at each of the four charging station that are part of the Chugach research program: Alyeska Resort, Dimond Mall, the South Anchorage Mall (home to South Restaurant and other businesses), and the MOA parking lot east of the Rustic Goat Restaurant. Contest rules are here.

New roots at Lake Hood Elementary

Chugach partnered with Carlos Tree Service, Arthur Campbell Nursery, and Lake Hood Elementary to plant a Goodland Apple Tree in the school’s community garden. The apple tree joins potatoes, onions, carrots, pumpkins, corn, strawberries, and sunflowers. 

A spot was chosen on the north side of the garden, and locates were requested to make sure there were no buried utilities in the dig area. After measuring around the pot to ensure plenty of room for the roots to expand, the nursery crew planted the tree and added a moose resistant cage.
