National Drive Electric Week
Sep 20, 2015
|Day:||Sunday, September 20, 2015 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
Community Environmental Council organized an electric car show next to the Sunday Farmer’s Market at Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta. The car show ran from 10 am to 2 pm. We had a diverse assemblage of 14 vehicles on display (including the Tesla Model S, Nissan LEAF, and Fiat 500e). All but one of these vehicles were brought to the event by local EV owners. Our local Tesla dealership brough the Model S. Owners stayed with their vehicles throughout the event to speak with shoppers, answer questions, and share their experience with driving electric. All told, there were about 25 interactions between the EV owners and Goleta residents that wanted to learn more about EVs. We were also able to spread the word about the new charging station that opened at Camino Real Marketplace earlier this year, which is the first publicly available DC fast charger in the City of Goleta.
Overall the event was a huge success, and I am already looking forward to making our 2016 event bigger and better.
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
