Drive Electric! The Future Meets History in Annapolis.

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Proclaimed by the Mayor "Drive Electric Day in Annapolis'

Annapolis Green, partneried with the Electric Vehicle Association of Greater DC, the Maryland Chapter of the Sierra Club, and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, to host the Annapolis Showcase as part of National Drive Electric Week at Susan Campbell Park on City Dock, from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 10, 2016.

Owners and dealers of electric vehicles encouraged the public to "Ask me why I drive electric!" with the Historic Annapolis Harbor as a backdrop. Discussion included what it’s like to drive electric including range, how and where to charge, cost, performance, benefits to the environment, and government incentives.

Most of the vehicles will be brought to the event by individual owners. In fact, we had many more vehicles than we expected!
