The Town of Rye Sustainability Initiative will present a free Electric Vehicle Event on October 11th at the Carver Center, in Port Chester, NY. The featured speaker is EarthKind Energy co-founder Ron Kamen, who has decades of expertise in community clean energy programs.
“The Town of Rye Sustainability Initiative invites everyone to attend this free educational event,” said Councilmember Tony Baxter, who is also the committee chairman. “It’s a great opportunity to ask questions about EV technology and how it can help communities like ours achieve greater environmental sustainability.” The Rye Town Sustainability Initiative Committee is devoted to promoting green infrastructure, including electric vehicle charging stations, water filling stations and LED lighting
Never perform an oil change again, and refuel with domestically produced energy by simply plugging into to an electric outlet. Across their life cycle, electric vehicles reduce harmful greenhouse emissions, toxic pollution, and the cost of fuel and maintenance. Ron Kamen will explain the multiple benefits of hybrid and all-electric vehicles. He’ll also describe the unique financial incentives that are available for consumers, including a variety of substantial state and federal tax credits.
The Electric Vehicle Event takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 11th at the Carver Center, located at 400 Westchester Avenue in Port Chester, NY. To learn more or register for the event, call (914) 881-4535 or visit RyeTownElectricCar.eventbrite.com.
