Event Report

As in years past, we expended no effort or money publicizing our event via social media, TV or radio because City Captain Jim Smith promoted it in his weekly Denver Post real estate column on the three Thursdays preceding the event.  The column also appears in three Jefferson County weekly newspapers.  Altogether, that represented over 250,000 readers.  Readers were invited to register at our own URL, www.DriveElectricWeek.info (not .org), which forwarded to our event's page on the DEED website.  A highlight of the event was that Tesla cars represented only 4 of the 23 different models of EVs and only 13 of the 50 registered vehicles -- a testament to the increasing variety of EVs now on the market. We were especially pleased to have a Rivian pickup, a couple Polestar 2s, and four Mustang Mach-Es among the EVs on display this year.  It was the first year that our parking lot wasn't big enough to accommodate all the registered EVs, so we put an equal number of cars in the neighboring business's parking lot!

Another highlight for us was the opening of The Net Zero Store, taking over the storefront previously occupied by Golden Real Estate. Throughout the event, Bill Lucas-Brown of HelioHome LLC was in the building speaking without interruption to many people interested in making their homes more energy efficient and possibly net zero energy.

A wide variety of makes and models of EV filled the Net Zero Store's parking lot. In the middle of it all, a Rivian pickup garnered the most interest. Not shown is the equal number of EVs filling the neighboring business's parking lot.

Event Description

 

All attendees and volunteers are required to follow local health guidelines. It is recommended that everyone wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all Drive Electric Earth Day 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

Our event is scheduled to coincide with the SuperCruise, a monthly April-to-October event that attracts hundreds of mostly internal combustion engine vehicles (classics and specialty). The gas guzzlers cruise up and down South Golden Road passing our parking lot filled with EVs.  We expect to fill our parking lot with 20+ EVs of all makes and models.
