Is this the year you go electric? For communities like ours, fossil-fuel-based transportation is a major contributor of greenhouse gases. As we’re experiencing the effects of climate change, it’s time to seek pathways to more sustainable living.
Explore alternate energy options in a fun downtown setting.
Join your neighbors and learn more about replacing traditional vehicles with electric options, swapping car trips with bike and e-scooter rides, and updating gas-powered landscaping equipment with greener solutions. There will be plenty of fun with live music, food from local restaurants, and a Solar Car Derby for kids!
