Event Report

It was beautiful day at the park for our Drive Electric Earth Day event! We had a dozen different EVs on display from private owners who shared their driving experience with the public. The local Mercedes and Chevy dealers offered test drives in the latest Chevy Bolt and Mercedes EQ cars. You should have heard the reaction from the folks who were driving an EV for the first time. "This is my next car!" and "That was amazing!" were heard more than once! And many were eager to learn about the the way to cash in on over $10,000 of incentives and tax credits on their EV purchase or lease. Event partners Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition, SLO County APCD, and SLO Rideshare also educated the public on the many ways we can all lower our carbon footprint, clean up our atmosphere, and enjoy a healthy a planet. We also had a wide variety of e-bikes available for test rides, furnished by Bike SLO County and Pedego of Pismo. Exciting event all around!
