Pedal Power Bike Donation Program

Got a bicycle you don’t need anymore?  Here’s a great way to recycle it!  On Saturday (Nov. 2) from 9 a.m. to Noon, several locations in the Northwest suburbs will be accepting bicycle donations as part of the “Pedal Power” program.  These bikes will then go to Chicago Public School students as a reward for good grades.

Nearby drop-off spots include Mike’s Bike Shop in Palatine (155 N. Northwest Hwy.); Glenview Cycle (1011 Harlem Ave.) and Garner Cyclery in Northbrook (1111 Waukegan Rd.) For more information and a complete list of drop-off locations, go to http://gopedalpower.com/ .

ECOtality offers Free Electric Vehicle Residential Wall Mount Chargers

Earlier this month, ECOtality, a clean electric transportation and storage technology company, announced that it was partnering with ComEd to give a free residential Blink wall mount charger as well as an installation credit up to $400 to qualified Chicago-area residents who have taken ownership of a Nissan LEAF or Chevy Volt.  In exchange for receiving the charger and installation credit, residents are expected to participate in the EV Project, which shares data about both the vehicle and charging units (energy used, time, and duration of charger use).  No personal information is shared or included in the data.  To learn more about the EV Project program and see if you qualify go to www.theevproject.com.
