2020 Drive Electric Week
September 26 - October 4

Like everything else, COVID-19 has largely driven Drive Electric Week into the virtual realm this year. However, the benefit is that you can now attend events all over the Oregon and the country.

Would you like to get an overview of EVs including purchase incentives, home charging, the driving experience, and more? Travel virtually to Lake Oswego to attend a live workshop.

Concerned about EV batteries, including longevity, recycling, and environmental impacts? The Electric Auto Association has a workshop for you.

Want to hear about owners' experiences with particular EV models? EV advocacy organization Forth Mobility in Portland has set up a webinar where you can "Ask an Owner."

There are dozens of other workshops covering everything from the latest in electric trucks to travel stories to solar-powered charging. See the full list at:

National Drive Electric Week Events

Coincidentally, 350 Deschutes is having its annual Go Clean Energy Conference, which includes one day on EVs and electric bicycles. Tuesday, September 29 is the vehicles day.

Most events are free but do require registration, so don't hesitate, sign up now!
