About our local organizers:
The New York State Electric Automobile Association (NYSEAA) is a Rochester NY based group that advocates for the use electric vehicles and is a great resource of information. The group started as a resource for those building their own EV’s and with the advent of production EV’s we have converted to assisting those that want to buy and drive the new generation of EV’s as well as lending our support to efforts for a larger adoption of electric vehicles.
Greater Rochester Clean Cities (GRCC) coalition is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. The objectives of the coalition are to reduce dependency on petroleum and improve air quality through development of fleets of alternative fueled vehicles and supporting infrastructure. The coalition supports a variety of alternative fuels, including EV's, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) , LPG (propane) and biofuels like E85 and biodiesel, as well as other strategies such as anti-idling and VMT (vehicle miles traveled) reduction.
