It’s time for the big event we look forward to every year: National Drive Electric Week!  This is the time for everyone in and around the Space Coast of Florida to come out and take a ride in a Tesla and every other available make and model electric vehicle.  These are our personal cars we drive every day to work and school and have driven them for many years and almost a million combine miles.  Every car on display or available for ride and drives will be able to plug in and drive on pure electricity.  This does include plug in hybrids like the Chevy Volt and Ford CMax Energi that have built in gas generators for long trips in addition to 100% electric only cars like the Tesla and Nissan Leaf.  There will be at least 14 different makes and models to see and take for a ride around the block to get the full EV experience.  To show everyone just how easy and convenient it is to plug in your car every day, we’ll have some charging stations and portable chargers on site to let attendees plug and unplug our cars!  We’ll have a big tent set up for water and shade for public Q&A. Since we drive these cars every day we are definitely the people to answer your burning EV questions.  We’ll have food trucks, music and raffles for small prizes!  There will be environmental exhibitors such as solar power installers, the Marine Resources Council, and the Turtle Coast Sierra Club.  We’ll also have the new Electric Fun Rides right next door with electric bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and hoverboards ready for you to take a spin.  So come on out, check out all the different makes and models of electric vehicles, take a ride around the block in some others and enter the raffle for prizes.   This day is all about electric vehicles and how fun and easy they are to drive and to spread the word on all the savings on fuel and maintenance and their environmental benefits of clean air.  We’ll have our members on hand that can show you how they installed solar panels on their house and now charge their electric car with pure sunlight!  Make sure to register to attend right now, today!  Go here for our official event page and click the Register button: https://driveelectricweek.org/event.php?eventid=917
