Cool News


Cool Davis Partners Coalition meeting was held December 20, 2017, at RepowerYolo offices in Davis.

The recent Driving on Sunshine EV/PV Home Tour held April 15 at seven homes across Davis helped to shine a light on cutting edge homes, neighbors, and neighborhoods in our community. Thanks to Chevy Bolt owner Richard who gave Cool Davis mascot El Rayito a ride during the tour.

Check out some raw video clips from the tour on our Facebook videos page.

Resilience Is Key to a Livable Future

by Annie Merritt
