A chapter in Oregon is guided by the genius of its members

“We’re very lucky with the Emerald Valley chapter in that we have so many great members who are very imaginative and very active,” Barnhart said. “Together, they go a long way toward broadening our reach and our capacity. My job is to help and comment and then get out of the way.” Chapter member Sid Baum is a case in point. In addition to co-running a 50-acre family farm outside Eugene with her husband, she’s been an advocate for everything EV, including farm equipment. Most recently she has spearheaded efforts to include electric tractors in the list of EVs eligible for state rebates.
