National Drive Electric Week Event

Approximately 200 participants and attendees made Harrisburg's first National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) event a big success on Saturday, September 25, 2021. The event featured more than 20 electric vehicles (all-electric and a few plug-in hybrids) from a variety of auto manufacturers – all shown off by the owners of the vehicles to share their driving experience with other EVs drivers and the interested attendees. Special thanks to all of the NDEW national sponsors; the Town of Harrisburg; Plug In NC, CleanAIRE NC; Cabarrus County Schools Transportation Department; Thomas Built, Tayco Electric & Solar, Renewable Energy Design Group, Duke Energy, and Hendrick Honda of Concord. This NDEW event was hosted by the Harrisburg Sustainability Advisory Board.
