Chargers are kind of a cart before the horse issue to the EV world. Asking a business to invest in installing and maintaining EVSE is difficult especially if it isn't something they are knowledgeable about or if they don't see how it can benefit them. On the other side, if people view finding chargers as difficult, they worry about investing in an EV for themselves for fear of "running out of juice". As EV owners we can help with some of these issues by using the existing infrastructure to show businesses that if they install EVSE we will use them and can also show non-EV people what is available because when they see us in those parking spots they engage us and ask questions.
With that in mind, Drive Electric Columbus set up the #SupportLocalChargers Challenge. During the Challenge, we encourage our members to locate at least one public charger and use it. While there, take a picture and then share it with us.
Celebrate Earth Month with Round 8 of #SupportLocalChargers and share pictures with us of where you are using public EV infrastructure with your vehicle.
We are celebrating Earth Month (April 1 to 30) with another round of our #SupportLocalChargers Challenge! Check back throughout April for special bonuses related to Earth Day. We look forward to seeing where you are charging in April!
Participating is easy. Just take a picture when you use a public EVSE and share it with us! You can email us at Info@DriveElectricColumbus.com or submit on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram (just tag us and/or use the hashtag #SupportLocalChargers).
Earn prizes for sharing pictures: 1 to 4 pictures:
