So, You’re Curious About Electric Vehicles?

September 29 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT

Join this co-hosted webinar with City of Calgary and Peaks to Prairies during National Drive Electric Week (Sept. 26-Oct. 4, 2020).

So, you’re curious about electric vehicles?

Choosing an electric vehicle can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and save you money on maintenance, fuel and potentially on insurance premiums as well. Electric vehicles are also quiet, powerful, and fun to drive! Transportation accounts for one-third of Calgary’s greenhouse gas emissions, making electric vehicle adoption one of the greatest opportunities to reduce emissions in our city.

This workshop, co-hosted by the City of Calgary’s Climate Program and Transportation Planning with special guests from Peaks to Prairies, will address some of the most common misconceptions about electric vehicles, delve into the benefits and barriers of electric vehicle ownership, explore the advancement of charging infrastructure in Alberta, and more.
