National Drive Electric Week is a week-long event that happens in cities all across the United States. NDEW was started many years ago with the goal of raising awareness of electric vehicles. It is a showcase where current electric vehicle owners show off their cars and, at some events, dealers provide test drives to show the public the many benefits of going all electric. The event is open to EV owners, their guests, and the public.
After you register* and complete a short survey, you'll be entered to win $250.
We are having a limited run of "Ithaca is Electric" t-shirts made. Shirts have been ordered and after the pre-orders have been filled we will have around 10 left of various sizes. Price for S, M, L, and XL are $19 each. XXL and larger sizes can be ordered and potentially even made the same day over at T-Shirt Express on the Commons. We only make a couple bucks on each shirt but it will help cover event costs.
If you are interested in displaying your vehicle, we are going to have a parade before the event. We will all meet in the parking lot at Walmart at 10 am. We will depart at 10:20 and we will all drive to West State St together. If you cannot meet us at Walmart before 10:30, please proceed directly to the event on West State St.
The address for Walmart is 135 Fairgrounds Memorial Pkwy, Ithaca, NY 14850
