We are nearing a turning point in the electric vehicle marketplace, with prices dropping and over 30 makes and models on the road. It’s exciting – and confusing! With support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Drive Electric Hudson Valley empowers drivers, car dealers and communities with:
consumer education through workshops and the media,
group purchases and discounts,
car dealer training and mentoring,
and help for communities with infrastructure planning and municipal procurement.
Drive Electric Test Drive Event
On September 19th, 2021, Healey Brothers offered test drives in their Hyundai Kona and Ford Mach-E electric vehicles at the Elks Lodge in Beacon, located at 900 Wolcott Avenue.
Incentives include $500 off any electric vehicle purchased or leased from Healey Brothers until December 31, 2021, and Healey Brothers will donate $10 for every test drive to Sustainable Hudson Valley. This Event will be hosted by Healey Brothers, Sustainable Hudson Valley, Beacon Conservation Advisory Committee, Green Beacon Coalition, Sustainable Putnam, and Climate Smart Phillipstown.
Sustainable Hudson Valley is proud to release a new study on charging benefits and economics, showing how Main Streets and neighborhoods can use state and utility incentives to install public chargers at little or no cost.
