Event Report

Although not a participant in our event on 9/15, Vermont Governor Phil Scott launched an EV charging grant program during Drive Electric Week on Tuesday, 9/11 - http://governor.vermont.gov/press-release/governor-phil-scott-announces-24-million-grants-electric-vehicle-charging-stations

We enjoyed seeing many returning volunteers from past Drive Electric Week events proudly displaying their EVs and some new participants too. The Tesla Model 3 was especially exciting and was busy the entire event.

Event Description

 

Drive Electric Vermont and Burlington Electric Department (BED) have partnered to organize this National Drive Electric Week event at BED's offices on Pine Street in Burlington on Saturday, September 15 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm.

Please register to attend by clicking the "Register" button above if you'd like to bring your electric car or just come down to check out the fun.

We expect to have nearly 20 electric cars on display from local owners and dealers, including all-electric and plug-in hybrid options like the Chevrolet Bolt, Honda Clarity plug-in hybrid, Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Volt, Tesla Model 3 and more (see the full listing of expected vehicles below).

Unfortunately we will not be offering test drive opportunities due to liability issues. 

We hope mother nature cooperates - if there are any issues related to weather or other factors we will update this event listing with inclement weather plans.

If you are on Facebook we encourage you to also join the Facebook event and share among your friends.
   
We look forward to seeing you!
