Drive Green with National Grid  is offering the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute a new webinar series to answer questions related to electric vehicles (EVs). National Grid is offering a $350 gift card for anyone who purchases or leases an EV before December 31, 2020.

Here are the details regarding the upcoming webinars:

5 Ways You’ll Save on Maintenance

When: Monday, November 9, 12– 1 p.m.

Description: When you switch to driving on electricity, you can say goodbye to oil changes, mufflers, transmissions, and all the other parts in gasoline-powered cars that require regular maintenance and expensive repairs. Electric vehicles (EVs) are much simpler machines, which translates to lower maintenance costs and better reliability than gas-powered cars.


Buying a Pre-Owned Electric Car in Upstate New York

When: Tuesday, December 8, 12–1 p.m.

Description: Join us for this free webinar presented by Drive Green with National Grid to learn why pre-owned electric cars are a great value, what kind of cars are available, and how to find the right car for you.


Anyone unable to attend either of these webinars can still register to receive a recording of the event. Last month’s Charged Up Webinar can be viewed here.
