This upcoming September 9-17, 2017 will be the celebration of plug in vehicles and the country wide benefits that electric vehicles provides. Partners such as Plug-In America, Sierra Club, and Electric Auto Association provide frequent events all across the country to promote sustainability in transportation. So far, in Maryland alone, two events are being planned for Poolesville and Hyattsville, where those interested in electric vehicles can come out and check out the various products in this field. In the past, there have been EV education and outreach events in many locations, including Baltimore, Annapolis, Rockville, Frederick and more.

Beyond the opportunities to see the products in the field, EV Week is about the environmental sustainability surrounding electric vehicles and how the contributions to one’s financial state will be significant. If you are still interested in learning more about EV Vehicles but are not in Maryland at the time events are taking place all over the country. Some events are even held internationally in Buenos Aires and other parts of South America. The information and the activism surrounding EV Vehicles is immense, making EV week very accessible for anyone, anywhere.
