Start organizing now! National Plug In Day is set for Sunday, September 23, 2012 and is an unprecedented nationwide observance drawing global attention to the environmental, economic and other benefits of plug-in electric vehicles.
Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association are teaming up to plan for this effort, which will sound the bell through plug-in parades, tailpipe-free tailgate parties, test-drives and other grassroots activities.
The goal of National Plug In Day is to get owners of plug-in cars together with the general public where the general public can then talk to the owners of these vehicles and hear what the cars are like to live with in the real world and possibly purchasing a plug-in vehicle.
It is my hope that this year’s event move from being solely a United States observance to being an event that includes many more cities in the U.S. and many international one as well. To make this happen we need organizers everywhere. The Sierra Club is offering assistance to what they call “City Captains.” City captains will be the point of contact for organizing the National Plug In Day event in a particular city.
