Event ReportWe had a beautiful morning in the Champlain Islands! Many of the attendees were very interested in buying an EV and appreciated the opportunities to have in-depth conversations with EV owners who know all the details. We even had attendees from across the lake in NY. A great day to share enthusiasm and information!

Dave Roberts of Drive Electric Vermont, Rebecca Towne and Andrea Cohen of Vermont Electric Cooperative talk with attendees about the electric vehicles on display. Shown in this photo are VEC's Ford Fusion Energi, a Hyundai Kona, a Chevy Bolt and a Tesla Model 3.
In partnership with Drive Electric Vermont, Vermont Electric Cooperative will be celebrating Drive Electric Week Sat, Sept 21 from 10am-1pm at the Grand Isle School at 224 US Route 2 in Grand Isle.
At “Islands Drive Electric Day,” there will be All-Electric Vehicles (AEVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) on hand along with their owners (many of whom are members of Vermont Electric Co-op) who will be available to talk with interested people at the event. The event will take place along a well-traveled main road in the Champlain Islands during the same hours as the weekly Saturday Champlain Islands Farmers’ Market, located less than a half mile from the school, on the same road. VEC and Drive Electric will have a highly visible tent and plenty of EV expertise and EV information on hand, so come out and join us!
You can learn more about electric car options and incentives on the Drive Electric Vermont website.
Information on Co-op member incentives are available on the the VEC Electric Transportation page.
