Earth Day 2013: Make the EV Connection

Earth Day 2013: The Face of Climate Change

Who would have thought that the EV movement could have made such progress against all odds?  Much of the success is based on the tireless volunteer work of grassroots organizations that spend weekends and any opportunity they get to share the many benefits of switching to Electric drive.

Along with National Plug In Day – Earth Day celebrations are a fantastic opportunity to get out there and introduce your friends, families and communities to the many benefits of driving Electric!

Take your voice to the next level by reaching out to your elected officials and community leaders to join the conversation with you and other like minded EV drivers.  Here in the States Green OnRamp supports Plug In AmericaElectric Auto Association along with the local efforts of SF Bay Area LEAFs and our local EAA Silicon Valley Chapter.  Let us know if you have any trouble finding a local group.

While celebrating, please be sure to take a few pictures or videos of the fun and serious business of changing the world one perception at time.  Share these with your social and business networks as well as the Earth Day Network.  Each exposure to EVs makes it that much more normal to all that you encounter.

Follow this link to the new Plug In America Events page where you you can find EV events that make every day Earth Day!

Pathways To 100% Renewable Energy

Green OnRamp is pleased to support this cutting edge event bringing together energy visionaries from around the world.

April 16th, 2013 | Fort Mason Conference Center, San Francisco

100% renewable energy is rapidly becoming the new normal energy mix. Are you ready to be part of the biggest energy evolution of our time?

Come and see how international cities like San Francisco and Munich, as well as businesses and communities around the world are setting, achieving, and benefiting from 100% renewable energy targets.  Hear from top global experts about cutting edge technical, policy, and financial solutions, on the ground experiences, and the added value of transitioning to 100% renewable energy.

It is a fact that traditional fossil fuels, by definition, will run out and that they are causing multiple time-sensitive global crises. Therefore, the time is now for all of us and for our communities to understand how to technically, financially, and politically switch to renewable resources.

This is not a pipe dream. Millions of people on the local, regional, and national levels are stepping into a new 100% renewable reality. And reaping economic, environmental, and personal benefits.

Join us and know how to get it done.


Beyond Fossil Fuels – The Promise and Reality of Electric Vehicles

Acterra: Bring people together to create local solutions for a healthy planet.

Rafael Reyes, Executive Director, Bay Area Climate Collaborative will host a panel this evening of EV experts presented by Acterra. One in a series of sessions entitled “Beyond Fossil Fuels” –  ”The Promise and Reality of Electric Vehicles”.  

Paul Stith will be a panelist and will share a few of the projects he is actively working on including regulatory, national standards and legislative initiatives to insure a smooth and steady adoption of Electric Vehicles. Central to these efforts is providing consumers a clear path to obtain low cost domestic fuel that’s easily obtained, price predictable and comes from increasingly sustainable sources.
