Event Report

This was the City of Charlotte’s largest and most successful National Drive Electric Week event yet. This year the City partnered with the Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition and sponsored by Nissan North America and Duke Energy. The event was held downtown and encompassed the entire length of  the Levine Ave of the Arts.  Hundreds of participants visited “Electric Avenue” where they were introduced to a multitude of electric vehicles and were able to able to learn about the City’s Strategic Energy Action Plan from Assistant City Manager Angela Lee. It was an electrifying day filled with sunshine, great music, and glimpse into the changing world of sustainable transportation options.
