National Drive Electric Week Event - Schenectady
105 Jay Street
Schenectady, NY 12305
Take part in our 6th annual National Drive Electric Week event in the Electric City!
This is an opportunity for EV enthusiasts and auto dealers to showcase pure electric vehicles to the public in a relaxed open venue free of manufacturer, technical, or political bias. The goal is to get people excited about modern EVs and while giving them the opportunity to get up close and personal with them, as well as making EV test drives available from local dealers. It’s also a chance to help inform the public about electric vehicles, like any new technology, there are still some prevalent misconceptions and lots of questions that the public has. With a range of EVs on the road, there is an electric car for every lifestyle.
Attention all EV drivers displaying in the show: You will have to come down Liberty street from Erie Blvd. That will be the only way cars will be able to enter the event space. Please don't arrive before 10:00 am.
Local dealers will be bringing new EVs for test drives. We welcome participation from local car dealerships, EV owners, renewable energy companies, utility companies, and anyone else that is part of the electric vehicle eco-system.
Fun for the whole family
There will be three festivals, going on around the corner: a Little Italy, a Greek festival, and the Stockade Art event. There will be food and music, a NYSERDA outreach event and other attractions.
Take part in our EV group photo. There will be a Wellness Fair next door. The Albany Bicycle Rescue folks will be there with bikes.
There will be Solar power vendor displays to show the advantages of making your own clean energy and savings.
