All across the country, EV enthusiasts will come together to celebrate National Drive Electric Week. Join Triangle Clean Cities in Cary to see the latest electric vehicles up close, talk to dealerships and drivers and learn more about the newest technology. Educational tables will be out on display for residents interested in learning more about these new technologies, along with dealers and local EV drivers onsite to answer questions about the driving experience behind the wheel of an electric vehicle.
Event will be from 11 am – 1 pm at the Mayton Inn in downtown Cary 301 S Academy St, Cary, NC. Those interested in learning more can register for the event here, or contact Mary Sell (email@example.com or 919.558.9400) for more information.
This weekend (August 26-28), join Growth Energy, The Bachelor’s Chris Soules and WomenAutoKnow’s Audra Fordin at the Southern Women’s Show in Charlotte, North Carolina to hear about how biofuels – like ethanol – are keeping our air cleaner, cars performing better and wallets a little heavier. More importantly, learn how North Carolinians can soon benefit from higher blends of ethanol at Sheetz gas stations around the state. Soules and Fordin will be giving a special presentation on Saturday, August 27 at 3:00pm and the Novozymes Zymobile (a car that runs on blends of biofuels will make an appearance) – don’t miss out!
