clean fuels ohio logoPlug-in America, Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association serve as the national team providing support to these events throughout the country, and are pleased to partner with many other organizations and work with individuals helping bring National Drive Electric Week to communities across the country.

National Drive Electric Week all started in 2011 as National Plug-in Day with the simple idea of holding simultaneous events across the country on the same day. By popular demand, it was expanded to an entire week of events and changed the name to emphasize that thing we all want to do: drive electric.
