Take part in our National Drive Electric week event at Bridgeview Plaza right off the Mid-Hudson Bridge.

If you are curious about EVs, this event is your chance to ask questions to existing EV owners and see the many options out there for those that want to stop buying gas!  Local EV dealers will be bringing demos for test drives. Current owners will be happy to answer questions and help educate the public on EV ownership and it's advantages.
The Bridgeview plaza will be hosting a classic car show at the same time in it's huge parking lot, so space is not a problem. This should also bring lots of foot traffic to our corner of the show.

Look for the Green Balloons!

Free & Open to the Public!

Lots of food options available in the plaza including Pizza Mia, McDonalds, Subway and others. .
The Dutchess Cruisers will be playing music throughout and will have a 50/50 raffle and other fun activities.
There will be Solar power vender displays to show the advantages of making your own clean energy and saving money.
If you are an EV owner and want to participate in the event we can use your help! 
Please register today and come by the event to display your car to the public.

if you need to use a charger the closest one is at the Residence Inn in Poughkeepsie, 6.5 miles away. You will need either the Wattstation app on your phone or just call co-captain Mike at 845 380-8365 to unlock it remotely. Here is a driving map from that charger to the event:
