For the third year in a row, the City of Palo Alto is participating in Bay Area SunShares, a solar and Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) group-buy program administered by Building Council for Climate Change (BC3).
On Sunday, September 17, 2017, a Ride and Drive event will take place at Acterra in Palo Alto from 1 pm to 4 pm. Vehicles scheduled to participate are BMWi3, Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Fiat 500e, Ford Focus EV, Honda Clarity EV, Kia Soul EV, Nissan Leaf, Tesla S, and the VW eGolf. Ride and Drive events are a great way for the community to ask questions and see many EV models at once without having to visit multiple dealerships.
Additionally, on October 12, 2017 at 4:30 pm, Stanford Health Improvement Program in conjunction with the City of Palo Alto, ChargePoint, Project Green Home and Plug in America will be putting on the workshop "Is an Electric Vehicle Right For You?" This workshop will have EVs onsite and the panel will answer questions related to EV adoption, such as difference between all electric and plug in hybrid EVs; EV charging (home, work and public space); range anxiety misconceptions; battery longevity; buying vs. leasing; and the environmental, economic, and personal benefits of EV adoption. Participants can register here starting on 9/12/17.
