June 6, 2017 – You’re Invited to the first-ever Green Car Show in Nevada County on Wednesday evening, June 14, 2017, 6-8 pm, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main in Grass Valley.
Thinking about a vehicle with low—or no—carbon emissions? Want to do your part for the environment, and help combat climate change? Come to the Climate Change Coalition’s Green Car Show!! As part of its commitment to a Nevada County powered by 100% renewable energy, the Nevada County Climate Change Coalition presents its exciting inaugural and educational Green Car Show.
The very first of its kind in Nevada County, you’ll hear short presentations from longtime automotive journalist David Langness and green car advocate Allyson Gaarder from the Center for Sustainable Energy—and then you’ll have the unique opportunity to experience green cars from Chevrolet, Nissan, Tesla and Toyota, as well as electric bikes from Giant and Felt. Electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle owners will be available to answer your questions.
You’ll also have access to the Center for Sustainable Energy’s green car comparison charts, decision-making guidelines and financial information, including rebates, state and federal tax breaks and utility company incentives that can lower your green vehicle costs by as much as $10,000. Driving green makes sense—not just for your wallet, but for the world. Reducing your personal carbon footprint by driving a green vehicle is one of the best things you can do to fight climate change.
In California, rebates, incentives and manufacturer discounts on plug-in vehicles have never been higher than they are now—often making green cars less expensive than their gas-only counterparts. Utility companies now offer incentives and cash bonuses, along with discounted rate plans for plug-in vehicles. Many green cars have entered the used car market after low mileage short-term leases, and are now available at bargain prices. If you’d like to explore your green car options—before the generous rebates and incentives go away—now is the time!
Can you imagine driving without ever having to fill up? It’s now completely possible for just about everyone. Experts agree that gas prices will rise—so if you’re in the market for clean transportation, it’s smart to start looking right away.
Owners: do you drive an electric car or motorcycle; or a plug-in hybrid? Would you like to enter it in the Green Car Show? Free entry is available—call David Langness at 530-264-7392.
The Nevada County Climate Change Coalition’s Green Car Show will be held on Wednesday evening, June 14, 2017, from 6-8 pm at Peace Lutheran Church—828 W. Main Street in Grass Valley. All are welcome, and admission is free.
