Event Report

More than 200 people braved a windy, frigid day to attend the second annual Earth Day EV Expo on April 21 in West Lebanon, N.H. They came from 43 towns and cities in five New England states to see 25 different models of electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and e-bikes and to talk with their owners. Speakers in the Presentations tent led informal discussions about financial incentives for EVs, EV charging, and EVs in winter. 

Several sponsors of the Earth Day EV Expo set up exhibits -- Green Wave EVs, the first used EV dealer in New Hampshire; solar EV charging station vendor SolaflectEV; Cowbell Mobile Bike Shop, and Vermont Bike & Brew. Sponsors Norwich EV and Omer & Bob's Bikes generously donated to the event. A half-dozen nonprofit co-sponsors staffed literature tables and other organizations helped publicize the Earth Day EV Expo to their supporters.

For many attendees, this was their first EV Expo. It won't be the last. See our promo video at

Event Description


The Upper Valley's Earth Day EV Expo brings electric vehicle drivers together to answer all your questions about shifting to electric drive. Which EV or e-bike is right for you? What financial incentives are available to reduce the price? Where and how do you charge it? How much money can you save by driving electric, and how much does it reduce greenhouse gas emissions? 
Watch this 30-second video for a taste of the Earth Day EV Expo:

The location is adjacent to a brand-new fast charging station being installed by the electric truck maker Rivian, and Rivian drivers will be bringing their trucks to share their experiences. Other EV vendors and drivers will be there too, as well as e-bike riders and more!
