On Friday, September 30, 2022, from 9 a.m. to noon at the North Carolina Zoo, Randolph Electric Membership Corporation will sponsor a public event that showcases the clean-air and cost-saving benefits of electric vehicles. This event, planned during National Drive Electric Week (September 23– October 2), draws attention to the positive aspects of driving all-electric and plug-in hybrid automobiles.
Local and state dignitaries will be invited to participate. Vehicles from various dealerships, along with EV chargers, will be on display. Participants can see EV technology firsthand and learn about specific buyer incentives.
Representatives from Triad Electric Vehicle Association will also be present with their EVs.
“More of our members are asking about the benefits of EV ownership,” said REMC’s Director of Innovative Energy Solutions Michael Trent. “Randolph Electric is dedicated to educating our members on the issues they care about.”
At the event, representatives from Randolph EMC will describe how they work with EV owners to evaluate their vehicles’ impact on the electric grid. The REMC Electric Vehicle Utility Program (REVUP) offers members of the cooperative a $500 rebate on a level 2 EV charger for their home, as well as a special time-of-use rate that encourages them to charge during off-peak hours when energy is less expensive.
