Drive Electric Expo at Earth Day festivities

April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Drive Electric event details

Are you curious about what Electric Vehicles (EVs) look and drive like, what their owners think, how they manage charging? Do you want to check out a large variety of EVs now available on the new or used marketplaces – many available for test rides or drives? Did you know that there are now big tax credits for purchasing a new or used EV, and for installing a home charger? Come on down to the Drive Electric Expo in Keene on Saturday, April 22nd from Noon till 4pm, when and where the Monadnock Food Co-op is hosting its annual Earth Day festivities, with many food vendors, local “green” businesses, and live music! At our Drive E, there will be a free drawing where prizes include a free dinner for 2 at the Chesterfield Inn (fancy!), Royal Spice Indian Restaurant (another local jewel) and a gift certificate to the Toadstool Bookshop! Local EV dealers will be on-site showcasing their vehicles, along with private owners with theirs (privately-owned vehicles are not for sale). There will be a series of 5 minute mini-talks on the hour and half-hour:

  • 12:30 Home charging   
  • 1pm Public charging 
  • 1:30 Chargers coming to the Co-op!
  • 2pm Taking long trips with an EV
