National Drive Electric Week Event - Baton Rouge
|Day:||Monday, September 12, 2016 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||11:00AM - 2:00PM|
Baton Rouge, LA 70801
The event was held in the North Blvd Town Square in downtown Baton Rouge. We had planned to hold a press conference with the Mayor to announce the City's Green Park BR initiative where the city and Entergy are investing in public charging infrastructure, but the event had to be postponed due to delays in the installations and the Mayor's schedule (our state recently suffered through unprecedented flooding).
The Sierra Club joined us on the lawn and had a tent next to our Clean Cities tent. We showed the movie, "Revenge of the Electric Car" on the media beacon. Prior to the movie starting we displayed the NDEW logo on the beacon and played "car" themed songs for the event.
Vehicles on display: (3) Tesla Model S, (2) BMW i3, (2) Chevy Volts, (1) Nissan Leaf and a electric bike.
The Mayor of Baton Rouge, Kip Holden stopped by for a photo opp and to show his support for our organization. We have many great photos of the event - I can send more that show the layout and the sign.
