Charge Up Louisa: EV Forum with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative

Monday, April 3, 2023 (9:00 AM - 10:00 AM) (EDT)


Electric vehicles (EVs) are a growing market, with an increasing number located in and traveling around Louisa County. As the number of EVs in our state are predicted to continually increase in the coming years, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) is excited to partner with the Louisa Chamber of Commerce as your local, energy expert on EVs and EV charging. REC’s President and CEO John Hewa, Chief Strategy, Technology and Innovation Officer Peter Muhoro and Chief Engagement and Consumer Officer Tracey Steiner will lead discussion on the opportunities that exist today and will expand into the future as electric vehicle transportation continues to evolve. You will have opportunities to ask questions about how EVs and EVs charging will impact and benefit your businesses, what to do to get started with REC as a partner in EV charging, and other questions that will hopefully help bust some of the common myths around EVs. Join us so you and your business can become part of this important conversation.
