During National Drive Electric Week (September 12-20)—a nationwide celebration with more than 150 events across the country—the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is highlighting the stories of EV owners across the nation on social media.
With more than 350,000 sold, plug-in electric vehicles—also called electric cars or EVs—are increasingly common on our nation’s roadways. If you’re one of the many people who purchased your EV after hearing about their economic and environmental benefits from a co-worker, family member, friend or neighbor, DOE wants to hear from you!
Here’s how to participate:
- If you already own an EV, share your story, photos, and videos using #ILoveEVs or #NDEW2015, the National Drive Electric Week hashtag. If you don’t own an EV, DOE still wants to hear from you! Share what you like about EVs and why you may want to buy one.
- Follow along on Twitter (@Energy and @EnergySaver), Instagram and Facebook (both the Energy Department and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy) to see stories and posts about EVs throughout the week.
