Event Report

On Sept. 12, Duquesne Light, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, sponsored a NDEW event in downtown Pittsburgh’s Market Square. The event featured local dignitaries and dozens of EV supporters and vendors that are working alongside DLC to make vehicle electrification an important part of Pittsburgh’s energy future. Nearly 15 different vehicle models, including compact, full-size sedan and SUVs, were on display . Attendees had the opportunity to ride in and test drive EVs as well as take a ride on eBikes, eBoards and eScooters that were at the event. A highlight of the event was DLC’s announcement that it would be partnering with the Pittsburgh Parking Authority in the installation of eight new charging stations in downtown garages. In addition to reaching passersby, nearly 3.5 million total impressions were obtained via traditional and social media. Highlights include pickup in the Pittsburgh Business Times, the Trib Live, a Tweet from Pittsburgh's Mayor Peduto.
