Exploring EVs in Municipal Fleets

October 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

- Free

Municipal fleet electrification. Is it possible today? What vehicles can I order as plug-ins? Are they reliable? What metro fleets are using electric cars and trucks already? How can I get help funding electric vehicles in our city or county?

Join City of Olathe and Kansas City Regional Clean Cities to find out the answers to these questions and tour the solar-powered electric charging stations at Indian Creek Library. Olathe has been upgrading their EV fleet and installing 4 off-grid solar EV chargers. Find out what else they’re doing to clean up their fleet.

Attendees will include members of the local chapter of American Public Works Association, with lots of opportunities to share information, lessons learned and best practices.

Stick around for additional lunch and learn regarding all-electric terminal tractors being used in metro yards, including at Johnson County’s wastewater treatment plant.

Attendance is limited. Register today to guarantee your seat and claim your complementary lunch.
