Greeley, Colorado – Electric vehicle drivers, enthusiasts and intrigued local and regional residents are invited to attend the Greeley Farmers’ Market Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive event on Sept. 11, from 8 a.m.- 12 p.m., at the Depot, 902 7th Ave.
This event will feature information on electric vehicles (EV), EV charging stations, clean-air benefits, cost-savings and local, regional and state electric vehicle incentives, as well as an opportunity to test drive a variety of electric vehicles from local car dealerships. The ride and drive event will help educate Greeley residents about EVs. The goal is to recruit their help in reaching Colorado’s goal of putting 940,000 light-duty EVs on the road by 2030.
The ride and drive event is coordinated by Northern Colorado Clean Cities (NCCC) and supported by Xcel Energy Partners in Energy and the city of Greeley to support Greeley’s Energy Action Plan. Greeley developed its Energy Action Plan in 2019 through Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy Program. Greeley’s Energy Action Plan focuses on three community priorities:
● Create an affordable and reliable energy future
● Increase residential, commercial and industrial energy efficiency and alternative energy opportunities
● Improve economic health and stimulate growth
