SMUD Unveils Electric Vehicle Fast-Charge Station

Pilot Project Enables EV Drivers to Recharge in 30 Minutes or Less

Posted: 4/10/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Drivers of electric vehicles need not fear running out of juice too far from home in the Sacramento area. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has a new EV fast-charge station at the SMUD campus that is open for business. The pilot project’s technology charges most fast-charge EVs in less than 30 minutes, giving drivers the range confidence to fully realize the tremendous potential these cars offer.

The station features the only fast charger in the region with dual capability to accommodate most types of EVs manufactured by domestic and foreign automakers. This station is one of the world’s first commercial installations of certified DC fast-charge hardware that meets the new industry standard. It is also one of the first fast-charge stations in the U.S. installed by a utility and the first that SMUD will open in the area in 2014. The electric to gasoline comparison is about $2 a “gallon” to fast charge versus $4 for a gallon of gasoline.

Dad’s Kitchen Celebrates New Location With Festivities

By Bill Martin
Posted: 3/19/2014

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - February 28th started a ten - day celebration of Craft Micro Brewers across the region for Sacramento Beer Week. For Dad’s Kitchens’ newest location right here in Fair Oaks, a different event and Craft Beers featured ever day, running from February 28th – March 9th, there is sure to be something for ever taste and preference.

Although we received a much-needed few days of a torrential downpour, the drastic change in weather did cause concern for the Dad’s Kitchen crew planning a multitude of events, the largest planned for outdoors. After months of planning Owners Julio Peix and Christine Collins held out hope and were rewarded with fine weather for a wonderful kick off to Beer Week and an introduction of what a Dad’s Kitchen special event is all about. Those of you who attended can attest, the opening day of the Brew Circus to kick off Beer Week was high and dry, for the weather, but not the beer! We assume the Rain Gods talked with the Beer Gods and made a deal to give everyone a beautiful sunny day of fun, entertainment, and of course, beer! Although the event was to highlight many of the local micro-breweries in our area, it was also the introduction to the public of the newest location of Dad’s Kitchen, at 8928 Sunset Avenue, in Fair Oaks.

Posted: 3/19/2014

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - Just before 4 pm on March 6, a man and his dog were walking along the river. While climbing from the river. back up to the Bluffs, they found themselves stuck in wet, slippery terrain, unable to continue. Fearing that they would fall, the man began calling for help. Shortly after, Metro Fire units were dispatched for a vertical rescue at Riverfront and Central, in Fair Oaks.

In addition to an engine, Metro Fire’s Heavy Rescue and Boat responded to this location on the Bluffs. They quickly made verbal contact with the man, who was stuck 15-20 feet down the cliff. His dog, Jenna, had continued to climb, and was about five feet higher than him. After confirming that the two were uninjured, and that the man was in a secure spot, crews began to set up for a rescue.

Bera Tours Farms and Businesses Impacted by Drought

Posted: 3/6/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Congressman Ami Bera recently toured local dairy and cattle farms in Elk Grove and Rancho Murieta, as well as companies in Folsom that rely on the local clean water supply, to survey and bring attention to the local impacts of California’s drought. Bera brought a representative from the United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service along for the farm tours so that the federal agency could learn more about the drought’s impact on Sacramento County.

“California’s historic drought is hurting many Sacramento County small businesses and farmers, which impacts not only individuals, but our entire local economy.” said Bera. “I’m doing everything I can to both help those being affected in the short term, and to find long-term solutions for securing water access and storage that add to our water supply rather than taking from it.”
