Wednesday, June 21, 2023 - Washington, D.C.
Our Coast to Coast EV Road Trip brought us to the vibrant streets of Washington D.C., a pulsating center of clean energy innovation and environmental advocacy.
We strategically timed our journey to coincide with the Clean Cities Energy and Environmental Justice Conference. This event serves as a critical platform for discussing the nexus of clean transportation and equitable sustainability practices. The conference provided us with an invaluable opportunity to learn from thought leaders, share insights, and foster connections that drive positive change.
Among the highlights was an unforgettable reception hosted by our vehicle sponsor, Hertz. We mingled with distinguished guests, including Margret Smith from the Vehicle Technologies Office at the U.S. Department of Energy and John Marine, Director of Electric Vehicle, Van & Truck Sales at Hertz, who have been instrumental in propelling the EV movement forward.
Before leaving this vibrant city we ensured the Chevy Bolt EUV was fully charged. The Royal Sonesta Washington DC Dupont Circle graciously provided overnight charging, preparing us for our upcoming venture to Connecticut.
