V. ESTABLISH EDUCATION AND OUTREACH INITIATIVES
Most American drivers are not aware of the cost, public health, and environmental benefits of driving electric. Educational opportunities can be offered to both staff and citizens to increase understanding of electric vehicles, charging, and the cost savings to taxpayers. Examples include having EV information on your website, hosting outreach activities such as “ride and drives” at which staff and citizens can ride or drive in electric vehicles, and outreach to local business fleet departments to offer information about both light and heavy-duty electric vehicle options.
Driving on Sunshine
The best way to see how fun, easy, and practical electric vehicles (EV) are is to drive one for yourself or hop behind the wheel virtually! That’s why from 2019-2020, we toured the Sunshine State offering first-hand ride and drive opportunities with an electric-vehicle roadshow. In early 2020, due to COVID-19, we transitioned our electric vehicle ride and drive events online. Whether in-person or online, our expert staff bring knowledge, experience, and fun to each event.
