Event Report

For Rochester's first year participating in the National Drive Electric Week, we had a great start and can't wait to build on that momentum for future years.

We had over 20 Electric Vehicle owners show up to show their cars to interested people and talk with them about what it's really like to make the switch to fully electric or plug-in hybrid electric. We even had an Electric Bus at the event!

There were lots of great conversations and even with the possibility of rain looming over us all afternoon, people showed up.

We can't wait to be a part of this National Drive Electric Week for years to come!
