WHO IS THE CVEC?

The Clean Vehicle Empowerment Collaborative (CVEC), is a partnership of Community-Based Organizations across the San Joaquin Valley that are working together to bring awareness and education about electric vehicles to our communities.

With the state of California banning the sales of new gas-powered vehicles beginning in 2035, the CVEC is working to ensure that San Joaquin Valley residents don’t get left behind in this transition. At each event, learn about our EV Equity Program, and how we’re helping folks apply for state, federal and local incentives to help make EV ownership a reality. You will also have an opportunity to connect with other community resources that are providing additional electric options for you and your home.

WHAT IS A RIDE AND DRIVE?

A ride and drive is an opportunity for community members to experience being behind the wheel of an electric vehicle, first-hand. The CVEC, in partnership with local dealerships, is creating spaces in communities across the San Joaquin Valley where residents can feel comfortable to test drive an EV without any of the pressures typically associated with test driving a vehicle at the dealership.

Are you considering buying a new car? Your next car might be electric! As the state of California transitions to an EV future, we want to ensure that our Valley families don’t get left behind. Come experience the latest in EV technology, learn about EV charging and start envisioning your electric future!
