Event Report

This event was part of Sustainable Jersey Summit, highly prominent state wide event with many town representatives, including Mayors, Green teams, Environmental Commission representatives, school districts, State Agency employees such as Board of Public Utilities and Department of Environmental Protection. There were all major New Jersey utility companies represented. 

We have had lots of MHD vehicles on display:
2 school buses, Peterbilt class 8 truck, Kenworth class 6-7 truck, 2x Volvo digger/front loader, Hevi front loader, Ford eTransit, 2x Ford F150 Lightning

Sustainable Jersey is a program developed by The College of New Jersey and offers towns and districts tiered certifications. This program is very popular and successful and New Jersey EVA is recognized partner when it comes to actions related to EV friendly towns.

Event Description


Update 4/28/2023: We had to report estimated number of EV owners on Thursday for the purposes of calculating amount of food. Only 2 people were registered at hat time so we gave them an estimate of 10. You can get an idea whether you get lunch by checking the number of registered vehicles minus one (the other vehicle is a Peterbilt Truck and the lunch is set up separately). So, don't hesitate and reserve now. If you have to cancel, please let us know by following the instructions in the confirmation email.

The New Jersey Sustainability Summit is a momentous event in our state, drawing change-makers from across the political, private, and public sectors. This exceptional one-day forum spotlights the successes and lessons learned from the people and projects that are helping New Jersey realize a more sustainable future. 2022 Summit attendees walked away with tangible resources and strategies to assist with their own community initiatives. This is your opportunity to do the same. We invite all who are interested to be ready to deepen their understanding and expand their network.
