Event Report

We had local regional energy managers discuss progress within our local municipalities and local EV Drivers sharing their experiences as an EV driver.  We had at least 30 registrants and I'm sure more viewers attending our virtual event.  We had multiple engaging questions that were answered and hopefully moved more attendees to purchase an EV.

Event Description


This will be a virtual event.  Join us for a panel discussion with electric vehicle drivers in the Capital Region as well as local officials planning for our EV future.  Find out what it's like to be an EV owner now - what challenges they face and how they overcome them.  Then find out what plans municipalities have to make EV ownership easier and more convenient for you.
