We joined Palmetto Clean Fuels (hosted by Ben Kessler), Duke Energy (Jim Poch), Renu Energy Solutions (John Sheldon), and a local Tesla owner (Rebecca Limpalair) to learn how residential solar enables resilient and off-grid charging for your EV. Covered topics were South Carolina’s EV landscape, Duke Energy’s EV outlook, and solar and storage basics.
This was a virtual event and was Part One of a Two Part Event. It was the first NDEW Event for the Greenville, SC area. We hope this will be a beginning of future in-person events for Greenville with test drives and many owners sharing their personal EV experiences.
