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.
