Electric vehicles (EVs) are cleaner and more affordable than gasoline-powered cars—and they’re fun too! But many Minnesotans wonder how they really work here in the North Star State. Can they handle our extreme winters? Are they a pain to charge? Are there hidden costs to the technology? There's so much information, where do you even begin?
Join Fresh Energy, Shift2Electric, and American Lung Association for a free educational workshop that’s unaffiliated with any automakers. We’ll have an honest conversation about EV technology, models available, advancements, emissions impacts, the realities of charging, and more. But don’t take it from us! Our panel of EV owners from around the state will tell you what it is really like to own, charge, and drive electric in Minnesota. You will also have an opportunity to get your burning questions answered during a fast-paced Q&A segment.
Are you in? If so, register now and then read up on our extensive Minnesota EV Info List (http://www.evinfolist.com) so you can learn before the webinar which EVs are available here in Minnesota.
Thank you to our promotional partners: Xcel Energy, Minnesota Power, and Austin Utilities.
