Event Report

The City of Seaside Earth Day Event took place on Saturday, April 30 from 1:00 to 4:00pm.  The weather was perfect and community
members, families and friends came out for a day of environmental education, music, and fun.  Attendees had the opportunity to
participate in a myriad of activities geared towards raising awareness on protecting and preserving our planet and demonstrating
to the public actions we can take to reduce our carbon footprint.

To encourage the community to drive electric, Ecology Action and Central Coast Community Energy organized the Electric Vehicle
Ride and Drive segment of Seaside's Earth Day celebration.   Attendees were able to talk with 11 EV Owners who were on hand
displaying their vehicles along with 5 e-motorcycle owners.  In addition, there were 8 EVS available for either a on-hands test
drive or passenger rides.  Overall, 43 test drives were taken during the event!

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.

Ecology Action is participating at the City of Seaside's 11th annual Earth Day Event with an Electric Vehicle Ride, Drive, and Display Show.  Come take a spin in an EV in honor of Earth Day!  We'll have EV's on hand to test drive and an array of EV's and e-motorcycles on display.  EV Owners will be on hand to share their experiences on their plug-in vehicles, e-motorcycles and will answer all your questions.  Our EV Resource Booth will be staffed with experts who can help answer questions on financial incentives that make buying an EV affordable, where and how to charge, which models might be best for your driving needs.  Test your knowledge on our EV Spin the Wheel!  

Celebrate Earth Day with us and discover eco-friendly tips that will have a positive impact all year long!  Get ready for fun, games, entertainment, and good food.  Explore sustainable local businesses plus learn all about driving an electric car!  

This a family-fun event and is free and open to the public.
