Join CEC's Director of Energy and Climate Programs, Michael Chiacos, and Barry Rands, SLO Climate Coalition’s Green Transportation Specialist – both EV owners and industry experts – to learn which 100+ mpge electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid might be best for you.
We will discuss financial incentives, charging, range, and how to pair home solar with your EV for maximum savings. Find out how to stack incentives and purchase a new EV for the price of a Toyota Corolla, and used EVs for as little as $5,000. Learn how to save $50,000 on gas with an investment of $6,000 on solar panels.
Together, we can move the Central Coast region away from fossil fuels in one generation.
