Come check out a
variety of electric vehicles (EVs) in person (COVID-safe protocols in place) to learn
more about the benefits of EVs and talk to current EV drivers about their
experiences. Multiple makes and models will be there - Audi, Chevy, Chrysler, Jeep, Nissan, Tesla, Volkswagen - accounting for 300k+ total miles driven. (See event map below.)
There will also be information shared about the
two charging stations in Harrisburg – one in Town Center and a brand new one in
Harrisburg Park (both are dual-port). Some Harrisburg local elected officials
will be in attendance (including Mayor Steve Sciascia) and other relevant
organizations will be participating - confirmed are: two solar companies, Renewable Energy Design (RED) Group and Tayco Electric & Solar; Plug-in NC (part of Advanced Energy); Thomas
Built Jouley electric school bus (a Jouley bus will be at this event!) and
representative from the Cabarrus County Schools transportation department; and a representative from the Duke Energy electric transportation team who will also be bringing a Chrysler Pacifica PHEV. We
are still working to confirm possible participation from some auto dealers, another electric utility, and others. CleanAIRE NC
is another supporting organization – the HSAB has partnered with them on some
initiatives and installed PurpleAir
monitors in Harrisburg Park and Pharr Mill Park.
"RSVP: Register to attend" is requested, but not required.
