SUCCESS STORY - Drive Electric Ohio, a Clean Fuels Ohio Initiative, has grown and developed six grassroots #chapters across our state to expand electric vehicle awareness and adoption. These EV enthusiasts join together and host events for their communities; including EV showcases, Ride-and-Drives, and educational talks. These events are more than just promoting #EVs - they’re about building a relationship with communities to find out what they need to fully access the benefits of our mission.
One such event was hosted in Trotwood where Drive Electric Dayton (DED) partnered with the city to combine the 937 DJ Showcase with a display of EVs belonging to DED members. Rap Hankins, DED and Trotwood Community Leader, had the following to say about the event. “The DJ Showcase was an event where people came to listen to music, eat BBQ, and dance. It gave EV enthusiasts an opportunity to showcase our cars. Once again, citizens of Trotwood were excited and are asking for infrastructure to support their purchases of EV’s in our community.

SUCCESS STORY - Drive Electric Ohio, a Clean Fuels Ohio Initiative, has grown and developed six grassroots #chapters across our state to expand electric vehicle awareness and adoption. These EV enthusiasts join together and host events for their communities; including EV showcases, Ride-and-Drives, and educational talks. These events are more than just promoting #EVs - they’re about building a relationship with communities to find out what they need to fully access the benefits of our mission.
One such event was hosted in Trotwood where Drive Electric Dayton (DED) partnered with the city to combine the 937 DJ Showcase with a display of EVs belonging to DED members. Rap Hankins, DED and Trotwood Community Leader, had the following to say about the event. “The DJ Showcase was an event where people came to listen to music, eat BBQ, and dance. It gave EV enthusiasts an opportunity to showcase our cars. 
Once again, citizens of Trotwood were excited and are asking for infrastructure to support their purchases of EV’s in our community. They are looking for EVs at all price points and models. Their knowledge of electric vehicles impressed me. The future for EV’s in Trotwood is bright. All we need are shiny new cars and robust infrastructure to support them.”

SUCCESS STORY - @DriveElectricUtah partnered with @acedisposal in the official ribbon cutting to celebrate Utah’s first class-8 electric garbage truck. This undertaking was supported by @UtahCleanCities, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Lancer Energy, Rocky Mountain Power, and BYD Motors (@bydusa). It has over 400 kWh of capacity and has demonstrated a full day’s use on routes of 10 hours or more. The waste industry is perfect for the electric truck because it can return to a hub to full charge every day. 
It has a predictable route and lots of starts and stops to capture the full potential of regenerative braking. By introducing this vehicle, ACE supports the mission of #reducingemissions, decreasing maintenance costs, and being a better partner for Utahns!

SUCCESS STORY - In 2021, Drive Electric Tennessee directly reached 1,582 individuals during 16 ride & drives, vehicle showcases and similar events teaching them the basics of EVs and in many cases getting #buttsinseats so that Tennesseans come to understand what it is like to drive electric! 
Much of that success is due to the multiple, local chapters that now exist in TN, including the #ScenicCity, #AppalachianHighlands, #UpperCumberland, and #SmokyMountains chapters. More chapters are in development in 2022!
