National Drive Electric Week is a week long event that happens in cities all across the United States. NDEW was started many years ago with the goal of raising awareness of electric vehicles. It is a showcase where current electric vehicle owners show off their cars and, at some events, dealers provide test drives to show the public the many benefits of going all electric. The event is open to EV owners, their guests, and the public.

Register by clicking the blue register button at the top of this page, complete a short survey, and you'll be entered to win a $250 Visa gift card. 

It will be held in the parking lot of Press Bay Alley located at 118 W. Green St. Ithaca, NY 14850.

Saturday September 14th 2019

We are having a limited run of "Ithaca is Electric" t-shirts made. Shirts have been ordered and after the pre-orders have been filled we will have around 10 left of various sizes. Price for Sm, Med, Large and XL are $19 each. XXL and larger sizes can be ordered and potentially even made the same day over at T-Shirt Express on the Commons. We only make a couple bucks on each shirt but it will help cover event costs.

If you are interested in displaying your vehicle, we are going to have a parade before the event. We will all meet in the parking lot at the former Hobby Lobby at 10 am. Its the same location as our brand new Tesla Supercharging station so it makes sense for us to meet there. Large empty parking lot and Superchargers! Yay! 

We will depart at 10:20 and we will all drive to West State St together. If you cannot meet us at the Superchargers before 10:30, please proceed directly to the event located at the Press Bay Alley parking lot. The address of the event is 124 W Green St, Ithaca, NY 14850.

The address for Hobby Lobby is 744 S Meadow St, Ithaca, NY 14850
