National Drive Electric Week
Sep 12, 2015
|Day:||Saturday, September 12, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
The Torrance EVent began with a "hose cutting" for new public electric vehicle charging stations. The "hose cutting" was attended by all members of the Torrance City Council, several previous council members, members of the Torrance Environmental Quality Commission as well as representatives from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Congressman Ted Lieu and State Assemblyman David Hadley. WE were also honored to have Joel Levin, the CEO of Plug in America, in attendance. As Mayor Furey said, it was "an electrifying occasion". The Expo opened immediately following and included test drives by Ford, Tesla and Nissan, some 34 vehicles on display by their owners, several electric motorcycles and an assortment of other environmentally themed exhibits, including a solar powered charging station.
