For 17 years Green Energy Ohio sponsored a statewide tour to showcase the installation and use of clean energy technologies. When we started, solar panels were a novelty and information was hard to find. GEO helped to fill that gap with in-person tour experiences, and went on to feature all forms of renewable energy, including wind, geothermal, and biomass.
Each year, local volunteers and clean energy activists came forward to share the progress that has been made in their communities. The Tour is planned for and by Ohio clean energy advocates and connects novices, owners, installers, and technical experts. In 2019, the Tour took place Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28!
This year we are taking a new route and focusing on all aspects of vehicle electrification. For an entire week in June, GEO and our partners will be touring the state to share the work that is being done, the people who are leading that work, and the opportunities that electric vehicles present.
We have six themes for the EV Tour, which we will be connecting through events at the various stops:
- Connecting clean energy with clean transportation
- Educating the public on EV infrastructure throughout Ohio
- Featuring EV business and industry partners
- Building an advocacy coalition for clean transportation
- Engaging policy-makers at all levels
- Supporting career pathways in clean transportation
