ACUA’s third National Drive Electric Event was held on Tuesday, September 12 from 12 – 2 pm. The event was held in partnership with the NJ chapter of Sierra Club with participation from the NJ DEP. This was ACUA’s third annual Drive Electric Week event, and brought 25 EVs to the Wastewater Treatment Facility. About 70 participants took advantage of the opportunity to speak with EV owners as well as car dealerships. Owners had the chance to share their experience with prospective EV buyers who are eager to learn about the vehicles, the charging infrastructure and costs and savings that can be realized. Representatives from Chapman Ford, Matt Blatt Kia, and Kerbeck Chevrolet brought vehicles to showcase. After welcoming guests and sharing information on ACUA’s experience and a local perspective on building infrastructure from Rick Dovey, speakers from Sierra Club and the NJ DEP added information on the growth and importance of this clean form of transportation.
