NDEW San Diego was an incredibly successful event. From the event sponsors (SDG&E, Center for Sustainable Energy and Cleantech San Diego), to the event hosts (Plug In America, Sierra Club and Electric Vehicle Association), to the stars of the show (the dealerships, exhibitors and San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation), to the supporters that participated in the EV Day Kick-Off Ceremony: San Diego City Councilmember Mark Kersey, San Diego Fire Chief Maynard, SDG&E VP Mitch Mitchell, Center for Sustainable Energy’s Colin Santulli, Cleantech San Diego President Jason Anderson, Plug In America Executive Director Joel Levin, and CA PEV Collaborative Executive Director Christine Kehoe. We also had San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts join us toward the end of the event.
Close to 900 people attended the San Diego event and over 600 of them took test drives in various EVs. We had 23 available test drive vehicles, and more than 100 San Diego residents showcased their personal EVs.
