April 20, 2012

More than 80 representatives of Kansas City’s electric vehicle (EV) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) were on hand at Johnson County Community College on April 20 to officially kick-off the Electrify Heartland project.

While there, attendees had the opportunity to drive an assortment of electric vehicles, as well as meet professionals in manufacturing, contracting, engineering, research & development, academia and workforce development to discuss issues affecting this rapidly growing segment of the area economy.

U.S. Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II addressed the group, congratulating them on leading the nation in creating comprehensive strategies for electric vehicles and related infrastructure.
