Drive Electric Week Events Take Place Nationally

by | Sep 22, 2023 | 0 comments |

National drive electric week has commenced! Over 200 events will be taking place all across the country starting September 23 until October 1. Drive electric week has been occurring every year since 2011, but when Covid-19 began, events were being hosted online instead of in person. This year, local events can be attended both in person and online. In-person events consist of car shows in local towns and cities to promote the variety of electric vehicles available to consumers. Prospective buyers can speak and learn from current EV drivers about their experiences and EV preferences. At some events, auto dealerships and EV charging providers attend as sponsors and can help provide intel on electric cars and charging stations.

The number of EVs being sold is on the rise as consumers and corporations see the benefits of switching to electric vehicles. Drivers and companies are seeking out new ways to lower their carbon footprints and become less reliant on fossil fuels. Businesses and commercial properties are incorporating EVs and EV charging stations into their business strategies to improve their sustainability efforts and prepare for an electric future. This can include fleet electrification and installing EV charging stations on properties for employee or customer use.

The federal government is pushing for EV adoption by providing tax incentives and credits to offset the costs of EVs and EV charging stations. They also are working on improving the availability of reliable EV charging stations for public usage.
