Pepco Teams with Automakers to Showcase Latest Electric Cars

Washington, D.C. - Pepco's WaterShed Sustainability Center will showcase the latest electric vehicles (EV) from BMW, Tesla and Ford Motor Company this Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and show customers the benefits of electric powered vehicles. The event kicks-off National Electric Drive Week in partnership with the Electric Vehicle Association of Greater Washington, D.C., whose members will attend with their various models of electric vehicles. 

"This is an opportunity for the community to learn about the many benefits of electric vehicles including the positive impact on household budgets and the environment," said Robert Stewart, manager new business advanced technology "Our customers will hear from actual owners and advocates about their day-to-day driving experiences including the costs associated with maintaining electrical vehicles."

National Drive Electric Week, which runs from Sept. 12 through Sept. 20, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles.  It highlights the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles and more.

Pepco's WaterShed Sustainability Center is located at the company's Rockville Service Center, 201 West Gude Drive, Rockville, Maryland. It is a living classroom and laboratory for sustainable energy that features multiple electric vehicle charging ports and other hands-on, interactive displays.

WaterShed is a natural focal point for having a discussion and educating the community about the benefits of sustainable water practices and sustainable energy technologies such as solar energy and electric vehicles.

Pepco encourages visits to our Sustainability Center to see comfortable, sustainable and energy-efficient practices at work. If you plan to bring a large group, we ask that you contact Scott Tjaden at WaterShed@pepco.com prior to your visit.
