Virtual Electric Vehicle (EV) Events | National Drive Electric Week
It’s time to go electric! But how does one get started? The variety of electric vehicles on the market is increasing, the network of charging stations is growing, and the tax benefits are still great (especially in Colorado).
Join in on these two virtual events focused on Colorado-specific EV ownership. As part of National Drive Electric Week (Sept. 26-Oct. 4), CLEER and their partners around the state are hosting two webinars designed to get you up to speed on EVs. Don’t this opportunity to take the first step in going electric.

National Drive Electric Week, September 26 to October 4, 2020, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today’s widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.
August was a doozy — across Colorado we saw record high temperatures, multiple wildfires, and drought, each highlighting the reality of a warming climate. The US Fourth National Climate Assessment warns that impacts of climate change are intensifying across the country, threatening our physical, social, and economic well-being. With important local, state, and national elections coming up, will 2020 be the year we decide to take bold action to reverse climate change?
The good news is we already have the solutions we need to start fixing this crisis.
We just need the political will to get it done….and, perhaps, a bit of inspiration. Join us on October 14 to see director Damon Gameau’s film 2040 – a project he calls an “exercise in fact-based dreaming.” Drawing on the best minds from around the world to focus on climate, economics, technology, civil society, agriculture and sustainability, this is a film that shows us what 2040 could look like if we envision a better future for ourselves and our planet. It’s a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action.
