Nerd Night: EV’s for Everyone

Thursday, March 30, 2023 @5:30pm

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are set to become the future of transportation as the global market moves towards more sustainable and eco-friendly transportation. Just how much do such vehicles help combat carbon emissions? And can anyone afford an EV? Did you know there are incentives to owning an EV? Join us for our next Nerd Night as we answer these questions and more! We will be sharing how EV ownership can be for anyone with lots of insightful information by EP Electric’s Electrification Transportation Team along with EV’s on display and portable charging demos.
