Event Report

This was a history making event. It was the largest display of electric vehicles in Kentucky's history. We had 50 EVs (very impressive for our state) and many makes and models even a Tesla Roadster (again very rare in KY). We had the TARC electric bus on display and some small fleet vehicles. It was very hot, but everyone enjoyed the event. We also did a screening of the film CHARGE.

Event Description


Join us for our 4th annual EV ride and drive at Sullivan University.  The fun starts in the Sullivan School of Pharmacy parking lot (near the Tesla Superchargers) where you can view all kinds of electric vehicles.  New for this year will be an EV Fleet Showcase featuring fleet vehicles from area businesses and organizations!  There will also be a Solar Electric Showcase.  

Then, stay for a screening of the film CHARGE in the Pharmacy Building.

CHARGE captures a pivotal moment in motor sport history: the advent of high-speed, zero-emissions racing. It came on June 12th 2009, the day of the world's first zero-emissions motorcycle grand prix. The race took place on the Isle of Man TT course, the most demanding and deadly circuit on the planet. CHARGE is the dramatic and highly entertaining inside story of an unlikely group of pioneers - obsessed visionaries, ambitious businessmen, new-tech eccentrics, government ministers and hardcore racers - from as far afield as India, the USA, Germany and Britain. CHARGE is about the future. It's about change. It's about the dream of a clean, green world. It's about the dream of winning.
