A ribbon-cutting that was actually more than that – it was the symbolic severing of a gas pump hose -- marked Richmond's largest private investment in public charging for electric vehicles.
Congressman A. Donald McEachin and the Honorable Harvey Hinson, Brookland District Supervisor in Henrico County, spoke. Alleyn Harned, VCC executive director, introduced the congressman.
Several electric vehicles were on display. There was also a screening of a documentary short called “EVolve: Driving a Clean Future in Coal Country.” The 20-minute film chronicles the challenges of EV advocacy in Kentucky.
Registered attendees report 193,761 electric miles driven.
