On Saturday, September 23rd, 2023, EnergyUnited is hosting our 2nd annual Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive Event at the Career Academy and Technical School in Troutman, NC to celebrate National Drive Electric Week.
Driving Change: EnergyUnited's EV Event will feature various exhibitors (Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition, North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation, Plug In NC - just to name a few!), local food trucks (Waffle Chick and Chicas Ticas!), car dealerships with their EVs, local EV owners with their cars on display, ride & drives in electric vehicles on site and more!
At this event, plan to explore more about electric vehicles from experiencing various EVs in person to riding in or driving an EV yourself. We will also have people available to answer questions and help educate attendees on everything EV related. If you own an EV and would like to put it on display at the event, please register on our page so we can get a count beforehand.
Please reach out with any questions (email@example.com)! We hope to see you there!
