National Drive Electric Week
Sep 13, 2017
|Day:||Wednesday, September 13, 2017 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Baltimore is one of the top cities in the U.S. for electric vehicles. We have over 40 public EV charging stations, including DC fast charging just outside of City Hall, adjacent to the War Memorial Plaza with dedicated EV charging and parking. Our 2017 NDEW event combined electric bikes and cars, with Baltimore also having the second largest electric bike fleet of any city bike share fleet in North America. Hybrid Pedals is an electric bike business supporting clean transportation in Baltimore, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Our core organizers, John Lebo, co-founder of Hybrid Pedals, Frank Lee, Baltimore City EV champion, and Jill rode from Hybrid Pedals to Exelon's headquarters at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Exelon has created a for-profit subsidiary, EZ-EV, to encourage EV adoption and use. We were joined at Exelon's site by John Jay in his beeeeeautiful EMotion, which drew a crowd. We then rode and drove on to City Hall where we were joined by a Nissan LEAF and Ford Fusion.
