Plug-in electric vehicle drivers, supporters, and interested local residents are invited to attend The Wild Center’s celebration of National Drive Electric Week on Saturday, September 15 from 11 am to 3 pm.
National Drive Electric Week is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today’s widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.
Visitors are invited to meet with vehicle owners who have successfully made the transition to electric. The public can also get an up close look at a variety of electric cars, learn how they operate, and what it means to rely on electricity instead of gas for your car. Then, kick the tires and see how they compare to conventional gas powered vehicles. Wild Center staff and volunteers will elaborate on the benefits of reducing your carbon footprint with hands-on programming. Also, local municipal leaders will be on-hand to detail new electric vehicle charging stations for the Tupper Lake area.
The Wild Center’s event is one of more than 280 across the country where electric vehicle owners, government and community leaders are holding electric car parades, “tailpipe-free” tailgate parties, ride-and-drives, and other public events.
National Drive Electric Week is organized by Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association.
