Belmont Drives Electric!
This new community-run program, sponsored by Sustainable Belmont, Belmont Energy Committee, Belmont Light and Belmont residents, promotes the use of electric vehicles(EV) in Belmont. Based on the highly successful Belmont Goes Solar model, the program includes pre-negotiated deals with local car dealers, Belmont Light monetary incentives, and community volunteers available to answer your questions. Since October 2016, BDE has had the highest uptake rate in the state.
Converting from a gas-combustion powered car to an electric vehicle could cut your transportation carbon footprint by half. Save money and help reduce Belmont’s carbon footprint.
Belmont Drives Electric has worked with Belmont Light and the town to install public charging stations and get EVs for the town fleet. They will be arriving in the next few months.
The EV Ride & Drive Event on March 11th at the Belmont High School was a great success. It marked the debut of the long-awaited, 238 mile range Chevrolet Bolt, winner of 2017 “car of the year” awards from Motor Trend, MotorWeek, and the Green Car Journal. Call an EV coach below to arrange a free door-to-door test drive of it or any other EV.
The next Info Session and Ride & Drive Event will be at the Chenery Middle School, 95 Washington Street, Sunday, April 9th, 1pm- 4pm, in the Big Community Room. Featuring the Chevy Bolt among may other EVs. There will be free refreshments and a $1000 giveaway.
