NDEW - Huntington Beach "Plug In To Excitement"

Wed Aug 20, 2014 12:39 am


National Drive Electric Week is September 15-21 this year. There will be approximately 200 events across the country celebrating the widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

If you are going to be in Southern California at that time, the event in Huntington Beach is the place to be. Due to the overwhelming response by manufacturers of exciting plug in products, it is now titled Plug In To Excitement!
Boasting 250,000 sq. ft. of event space, larger than 4 football fields, and already more than 40 corporate and company exhibitors, it is poised to be one of the largest Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) events in the country, if not the world. Attendance is conservatively forecast at 20,000, it could easily be double that. There will be more than 20 automobiles to drive, there are even global debuts on tap!

But this is not just an automobile exhibit, there will also be electric bicycles and skateboards to ride, electric surfboard demos and exotics, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and buses will be showcased. Of course there will also be special guests.
Talk to representatives from the utilities providers, photovoltaic manufacturers and installers, EV supply equipment manufacturers, public charging station companies, conversion and after-market product manufacturers and retailers. California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) will have a booth to answer rebate questions and Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation is exhibiting to discuss their involvement in CleanTech and Advanced Transportation. Hyatt Regency, Motivo, Exhibit Options and Hydra are partners on the expo.

It is a family event, bring the kids to have their own experience including bounce houses, electric RC plane demonstrations and other entertainment. Arrive in a PEV and receive VIP parking. There are contests, giveaways and more PEV information than you will be able to process in one day.

So go to the web page" onclick=";return false;, register to attend (first 250 vehicles registered receive free parking), check out all of the phenomenal exhibitors and speakers, and Like it and Follow it for daily updates on developments as they happen.
