The Greater Charlotte Region Celebrates National Drive Electric Week
The greater Charlotte region will be having their annual National Drive Electric Week Event on this Friday, September 15th, at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center plaza, where it was held last year. We invite everyone to come learn about alternative transportation options in the city and participate in National Drive Electric Week. Event day will see the plaza transformed into an interactive event made up of electric vehicle displays, presentations and organization tables. Come out to join in on the discussion of transportation options that impact both individuals and the community! We welcome all volunteers, electric vehicles and the public to come explore!
**To ensure a positive experience, volunteers and those bringing vehicles should pre-register here.**
You're invited! Friday, September 15th 11:00am - 2:00 pm at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, 600 East 4th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202.
The greater Charlotte region's National Drive Electric Week event was a great success! The location choice of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Government Center provided busy lunchtime traffic as well as attendance from key City of Charlotte 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, Envision Charlotte, Sustain Charlotte, CATS, Charlotte Department of Transportation, Club Car, GEM Electric, and Charlotte Cycles. There is a strong interest in our community for EV's and other choices in how we get around! Our NDEW event was able to involve a broader cross section of the community and encourage this interest while promoting the excitement of driving electric.
