Event Report

This was our first year holding our NDEW event alongside a farmers' market. The Sunset Valley market operated by Austin's Sustainable Food Center provided great cross-traffic and food! In addition to EVs, we also had booths from our local Smart Charge America installer, electric utility, 2 solar companies and a non-profit promoting climate action. Not bad for an event organized in under 2 months!

Event Description


Come meet EVs and their drivers! Requests to ride or drive vehicles welcome.
NOTE: The farmers market is located more exactly at intersection of Pillow Rd and Hwy 71.

  • Did you know that Austin has well over 400 charging ports for electric vehicles? 
  • Did you know you can buy a tag from Austin Energy for $4.17 a month that will let you charge free at almost all of them? 
  • Did you know that every EV comes with a charging cord that plugs into a regular 110V, three-prong outlet
Come to our event and find out more about why electric vehicles make sense in Austin.
