Event Report

Charlotte's National Drive Electric Week was a great success! The location choice of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center provided busy lunchtime traffic as well as attendance from key city decision-makers. Charlotte's city council environmental subcommittee meeting adjourned early to be in attendance at the event. Many interested visitors stopped to ask questions of our many contributors including: Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition, Modern Nissan of Lake Norman, Sustain Charlotte, Charlotte Department of Transportation and Charlotte Cycles. There is a strong interest in our community for EV's! NDEW's event was able to involve a broader cross section of the community and encourage this interest and promote excitement of driving electric.
