November 17th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Attending National Drive Electric Week Event In Florida

September 16th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Yesterday, I attended the Drive Electric Week event in New Port Richey. Next week, if all goes as planned, I'll attend another one in Florida. I've been attending these sorts of events for a few years. Although I enjoy them, I don't think they are very effective at their stated purpose. Every time I attend a Drive Electric event, it seems that it is preaching to the choir. I was happy to see a few non-EV owners at the event, but the majority of the people there owned an
