Carmel to Spotlight Electric Vehicles

Carmel will join communities around the world this weekend in promoting electric vehicles. The city will hold a National Plug In Day event at Clay Terrace Mall, where Duke Energy Corp. (NYSE: DUK) has installed a charging station.

Carmel, Ind. — Electric vehicle drivers, enthusiasts, and intrigued local residents are invited to attend National Plug In Day on Sunday, September 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Clay Terrace mall.

The Carmel community will join 80 cities nationwide and across the globe to participate in the third annual event that celebrates and increases awareness of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).

The event will feature Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard for an electric vehicle (EV) tailgate in the parking lot behind Whole Foods Market. Mayor Brainard’s remarks will begin at 11:30 a.m. and he will be joined by representatives from the Sierra Club, Duke Energy, Energy Systems Network, Tom Wood Automotive Group, Carmel Green Initiative and the Hoosier EVA, a local affiliate chapter of Electric Auto Association, to talk about the importance of PEVs and solar technology.

“Carmel is pleased to be participating in this event to highlight the important role that electric vehicles can play in reducing our emissions and conserving our resources. We are especially excited that these electric vehicle charging stations use solar power; a clean, renewable energy source,” said Mayor Jim Brainard.
