National Drive Electric Week started in 2011 as s National Plug In Day and expanded into a week long electric mobility celebration across the country with 178 confirmed events. As the ownership of electric vehicles expanded in the recent year so did the public interest. It is no secret each EV driver enjoyed speaking to curious public or offering friends and coworkers a chance to drive their car.

Drive Electric Week provides a fantastic opportunity to spread the EV word even further. Majority of the events around the country are designed to showcase the vehicles and educate the public on why they will never buy another petrol engine vehicle. This includes EV owners speaking about their experiences and in some cases even offering rides.

Georgia will kick off the celebration on September 12th with the 4th annual Atlanta Drive Electric Week at Atlantic Station. Big focus this year is on Georgia Power. Through the “Get Current, Drive Electric” initiative, Georgia Power has become a very big part of Electric Vehicle movement. As an anchor sponsor (along with Nissan NA) attendees can expect a fun filled event with prizes and giveaways. Georgia Power will showcase their new charging infrastructure along with information on $250 EVSE rebate and ‘Plug In Electric Vehicle Rate’ (PEV) plan.

Many local Nissan, BMW and KIA dealers are volunteering staff and vehicles for ‘Ride and Drive’. This will help educate the public on why driving electric is so much fun! Atlanta will also host few other exciting sponsors and will be giving away two free EVSEs.

The event will start at 9 AM with a Coffee and Electrons social followed by a public display of vehicles at 11 AM.

If you own an EV, this is a great opportunity to invite a friend and attend an event for sure. I am going to three events this year throughout the week. Will attend one of the Charlotte NC events with EV1 Marketing Manager, John Dabels. Hope to have good things to share the following week.

I would just like to add that Michael did a fantastic job putting together this promo video for the Atlanta event on his own. Not the easiest thing to do by any stretch.

It would be nice if other utilities would equally promote the PEVs as much as Georgia Power has done.

Georgia Power used to promote the EV1 as well even though it wasn’t for direct lease in GA back in the days…

It makes sense since GA PWR is in the business of selling energy directly to PEV owenrs. Taking revenue from oil companies.
