To help celebrate all of this positive momentum, on Sunday, September 15th, SRL is proud to be co-hosting Longmont’s first Electric Vehicle Fair as part of National Drive Electric Week! Started in 2011, the goal of this national week-long focus on electric plug-in and hybrid plug-in vehicles is to heighten awareness and highlight the benefits of these low emissions, fun-to-drive cars. It is estimated that a consumer can save $10,000 on fuel and maintenance costs over the life of the car. SRL is partnering with several other Longmont groups to showcase the variety and enthusiasm for EVs among local residents. So far, 18 EV owners (including owners of Tesla models 3, X and S) have signed up to offer rides and share their experience with owning and driving electric vehicles. To register your vehicle please click here. Confirmed speakers include State Senator Mike Foote and Longmont Mayor Brian Bagley, on what the state and City are doing to move forward with EVs. Valley Nissan, King Chevrolet and Green-Eyed Motors will be among the auto dealers offering vehicle displays and ride and drives. Business vendors include the Boulder County and Longmont Sustainability Programs, EcoMark Solar, Namaste Solar, the Platte River Power Authority, and more. There will also be information about rebates and incentives to drive electric. Food trucks, live music, a kids tent and free face painting will make this a fun, family-friendly event!
