No volunteer hours were used because salaried employees were the workers. Our event had our mayor and two city council members attend. One location television news station attended, and the two local newspapers came. We installed a new charger for the event, and had people spin a wheel to win prizes from Nissan, Virginia International Raceway, and from Danville Utilities. Everyone spoke highly of the event.

Several dealers brought out electric vehicles for people to view and test drive. Danville Utilities also had the Nissan Leaf fleet vehicle available for people to look at.
All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.
Join Danville Utilities at the Community Market on September 8th from 9am-1pm to learn more about electric vehicles. We will have one of our own Nissan LEAFs on hand for the event.
