Event ReportThe Juneau Earth Day EV Road Rally was an awesome success where the Road Rally was led with Juneau's first electric bus carrying many local and State elected officials. A record high sunny day in Juneau provided a great backdrop to show the community some of Juneau's growing electric vehicle fleet. Roughly 1 in every 40 vehicles registered in Juneau, Alaska is electric driven fueled by 100% renewable hydropower.
There was much local social media, radio and print media buzz on the event.
