Event Report

With perhaps the most beautiful venue of any NDEW event in the Country, live oaks provided ample shade at sunshiny Pinecrest Gardens where visitors of all ages enjoyed fun activities and EV owners shared their experiences and insights one-on-one with attendees. Pinecrest Mayor Cindy Lerner welcomed enthusiasts and spoke of the role of local governments in promoting clean-energy communities. Miami-Dade County Commissioner Xavier Suarez extolled the virtues of renewable fuels and South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard encouraged people to drive electric and offered free rides in his own EV which was part of the event. Following the festivities, event Co-Captain and SE Florida Clean Cities Coordinator Christine Heshmati declared that public and private sector employers are feeling the increasing sense of EV readiness on the part of the public and that the Coalition will be approaching local governments and private industry to take the Workplace Charging Challenge!
