Event Report

The 5th Annual Juneau Alaska EV Round UP was another great National Drive Electric Week. In addition to great EV displays, test rides, and information, we received a City and Borough of Juneau EV proclamation commemorating National Drive Electric Week as well as Juneau's electric transportation transformation. Many local elected officials participated in this year's event and we also displayed one of Alaska's first electric boat along with many electric bicycles.
Juneau recently received a $1.5M grant from the US Dept. of Transportation to purchase electric buses and this information was also shared at the event.

Our local sponsors shared hamburgers, hot dogs, refreshments and the weather cooperated with an awesome day.

Juneau appears to be the most Northern National Drive Electric Event in North America for 2018.
