National Drive Electric Week Event
September 21 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Dozens of St. Thomas drivers will demonstrate the widespread availability and benefits of electric vehicles (EVs) with an around-the-island tour and technology displays at the inaugural St. Thomas Drive Electric day. The free event is part of the fifth annual National Drive Electric Week. St. Thomas’s event is one of more than 280 across North America where electric vehicle owners and their communities will hold electric car parades, “tailpipe-free” tailgate parties, recognition of leaders promoting EVs, launches of new public EV charging stations and other public events. Local partners are DriveGreenVI, ProSolar, Magens Bay Authority, Virgin Islands Energy Office, Rotary Club of St. Thomas East, Yacht Haven Grand, Margaritaville Vacation Club, V.I. Montessori School and Peter Gruber International Academy, and the Island Green Living Association. Plug In America, the Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association are national organizers. The Nissan LEAF® is the exclusive national automotive sponsor.
