Many people came and went throughout the day - this is just some of the EV owners, guests, and vendors!
GET CHARGED UP Saturday, September 14th from 10am-2pm as the City of West Palm Beach Mayor's Office of Sustainability teams up with the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society for a National Drive
Electric event. Learn all about electric vehicles (EVs) from our EV experts,
find out ways to reduce your carbon footprint, and save wildlife. Electric vehicles are fun to drive, are less expensive and
more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment,
promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you
considering going electric? Get behind the wheel of an electric vehicle and take it for a spin!
SACE (Southern Alliance for Clean Energy) will be providing free ride and drives during the event.
Personal EV owners are encouraged to attend and will have spots reserved under the solar array in the Palm Beach Zoo parking lot this year.
The event will also feature the award winning Solar Cat V2 built and designed by Western High School. The solar car and team won the national championship in the Solar Car Challenge Classic Division in July 2018 where they drove the solar car from Texas to California!
