In celebration of Earth Day 2021, Electrify America and Electrify Canada will both offer free use of their respective EV charging networks. Starting midnight tonight Eastern Daylight Time, through 3:00 am on Friday, April 23rd, electric vehicle owners will have 27 hours of totally free charging on the networks.
So don't charge your EV at home today! Head over to a station on one of the two networks and fill up with some free juice starting midnight tonight. The companies are encouraging EV drivers to take advantage of the free charging sessions and to also share their commitment to an electric lifestyle with their social followers by using the hashtag #ChargeOnEarth in an effort to help foster grassroots support for Earth Day.
“Driving electric is an impactful action consumers can take to help reduce their carbon footprint, and Electrify America is excited to offer free charging sessions on Earth Day to celebrate that,” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America. “We are proud to help lead an electric vehicle revolution by enabling electric transportation for all Americans, on Earth Day and every day.”
