Event Report

Ms. Bubar presented a Proclamation by County Executive Marc Elrich designating Sept 14-22, 2019 National Drive Electric Week in Montgomery County Maryland.

Once again, Poolesville was one of the largest NDEW EV Shows in the world. Each year, we get a little better, bringing in more of the general public and we have gotten the attention of manufacturers and now, the local and county governments. We have worked closely with local EV and "Green" groups. People and EV owners are coming to our event from more than 300 miles away.  

Along with the many positive feedbacks we received from visitors, owners, and vendors, we heard comments like: "We have been to Poolesville Day the last 6 years but never really checked out the EVs before. It was AWESOME!! You all do a fantastic job and we will definitely consider and EV for our next car."

This event is a labor of love and we hope to continue it for a long time.
