Driving an electric vehicle (EV) is one of the single biggest actions you can take to fight climate change. At the free online program on Sunday, October 3, called “Goodbye Gas, Hello EVs,” we learned about the benefits of driving an EV, charging basics, rebates, the latest makes and models, and what’s in store for the future.

The program began with an overview of electric vehicles, including financial benefits and other perks of owning an EV. Current owners then provided information about their specific models and answered questions in breakout rooms. This program was presented by Acterra in partnership with the Citizens Environmental Council.

This event is part of National Drive Electric Week, which was presented by Plug In America, Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association. Nissan LEAF was the exclusive automotive sponsor.
