An unprecedented event will take place on Sunday, October 16 in a widespread effort to promote the green technology of Electric Vehicles to the masses. With 21 of the greenest US cities participating in 13 states nationwide the list includes: Austin, Dallas, Washington DC, Concord (NH), Denver, Honolulu, Kissimmee (FL), Detroit, Knoxville, New York City, Phoenix, Tucson, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego, Santa Cruz and Davis (CA).
In conjunction with the non-profit efforts of the Electric Auto Association (EAA), Sierra Club and Plug In America (PIA) this occasion is intended to inspire and educate the masses about the benefits of current and historical zero-emission alternative fuel vehicles. The cities will feature parades of cars similar to the previous Plug In Days that have taken place solely in California. Tailgate parties and test-drives will be part of the festivities, as well as other activities.
It’s interesting to note that the normally nature-minded Sierra Club has joined these Green Technology efforts with their own Go Electric Campaign as posted on their website. The concern for US oil addiction and the resulting pollution speaks to how it’s quite a job turning folks green. One would also venture to guess that Sierra Club members are some of the most likely consumer candidates and also buyers of solar panels and additional green technology.
The Sierra Club posts on its website a Myth vs. Reality analysis to educate and help convert any EV cynic, similar to Plug In America’s section with answers found under “Why Plug In Vehicles?” Detailed information about State and Federal Incentives, stories from Electric Car owners, and other examples further debunk the fallacies and misconceptions for people unfamiliar with this new green technology transportation.
The political climate is ripe for including more opportunities for students of all ages to learn more about electric cars and create more green technology jobs; advocacy organizations such as the Sierra Club and Plug In America also work in this regard talking with government officials at various local and state levels to pass new bills and laws that make the most sense for this green transportation transition.
Additionally since 1967, The Electric Auto Association has been promoting Electric Vehicles and now boasts 77 affiliate chapters throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Their community mission is most similar to Plug In America as a resource website devoted exclusively for Electric Vehicles. World EV events are listed once you join as an online community member plus general Electric Car news and an interesting history about EVs are available for anyone to see.
