Community Event – National Drive Electric Week – Martinsburg
September 21 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us in the beautiful eastern panhandle of West Virginia for our second annual National Drive Electric Week event! Area EV owners will be showing many electric vehicles from various manufacturers. Regardless of the make or model, you can be assured of no or low fuel costs and an all electric grin!
This year’s event will be held at the Eastern WV Regional Airport! The Crosswinds Cafe will be open during most of the event to grab a snack or something to drink and restroom facilities will also be available. The cafe has a great view of the runway so you can enjoy a bite to eat and watch the planes – everything from small Cessnas to large military C17s. You might even get lucky and see the plane that serves as AirForce 1 practicing! We are centrally located to Hagerstown, MD and Winchester, VA and encourage our out-of-state neighbors to make the easy drive on I-81 to Martinsburg.
For Tesla owners, there is a Supercharger at the Sheetz station on Edwin Miller Blvd off of I-81. There are non-Tesla L2 chargers located at Martins Distributing on Race Street (site of last year’s event) and other locations (check PlugShare). We will offer electric vehicle rides for those not yet initiated and answer questions from the public on what it’s like to drive an EV, charge an EV, use solar with an EV, etc. There will also be door prizes for attendees (must be present to win).
