National Drive Electric Week
Sep 29, 2013
|Day:||Sunday, September 29, 2013 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Over a dozen dealership provided EVs racked up 300 test drives traveling over 700 miles. These were joined by 50 private EVs and owners sharing their personal experience driving electric. Face painting, sparkle body art, science demonstrations, coloring books and a SMUD RAV4 EV for writing and drawing on, provided activities for kids while parents test drove vehicles and gathered information. A dozen groups participated providing information on charging via solar, clean air, college automotive programs, car conversions, workplace charging, utility rates and general EV information. The UC Davis EV Formula Race car team joined in showing their race car.
Two Amazon Kindles were awarded along with two Clipper Creek donated EVSEs. SMUD and CarCharging provided electricity to power the EVent, while the Sacramento clean air district help feed the volunteers.
