2021 Drive Electric Week Events

2021 Vermont Drive Electric Week Events

It is increasingly clear that for Vermont to reach its goals of reducing climate-changing carbon emissions we must rapidly electrify our transportation options. The Vermont Sierra Club invites you to attend two important Drive Electric Week Events on September 25 in South Burlington and October 2 in Montpelier.

Additionally, throughout September we will collect signatures on a petition to Governor Scott to support vehicle electrification on a scale needed to address the Climate Crisis. Please see the petition here and sign your name.
