National Drive Electric Week
Sep 08, 2018
|Day:||Saturday, September 8, 2018 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
I think the event went very well even though we did have some whether issues. It would be better for events in the south to be later in the year because we had temperatures in the high eighties. We also had to shut down early because of a thunder shower. We did have the city mayor come and talk and present us with a city proclamation. Our venue at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, which is a historic site in the city, is a great place to attract visitors. We got permission from the city to close Station Street to hold the event. We could not offer rides because the street was closed which restricted vehicles leaving during the event. However, our vehicle owners were very busy showing visitors their electric cars and answering questions. Also, thanks for the educational flyers that we distributed to visitors. I feel our goal to educate the general public about electric transportation alternatives was very successful.
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
