Count Electric Vehicles on Independence Day
Help Plug In America count electric vehicles (EVs) from coast to coast on Independence Day 2019
Celebrate your freedom from oil this Independence Day! Plug In America is organizing the first annual Independence Day EV Count. Inspired by the National Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count, we invite you, EV drivers and supporters, to get out into your neighborhood and count how many EVs you see.
How it works:
- On the 4th of July, go for a walk in your neighborhood and count how many all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles you see, compared to the total number of cars you see. We recommend counting 100 total cars if you can, but feel free to count as many or as few as you like! Reference our Electric Vehicle Guide to see the EVs currently available.
- Return to the Plug In America website and fill out a short form to indicate the total number of cars counted and, of those, how many were all-electric vehicles and how many were plug-in hybrid vehicles.
- We will then report back to you the results of the count, including breakdowns by state.
While this isn’t a scientific study, it’s a fun opportunity to count how many of your neighbors are driving electric. And we plan to continue this project in future years on Independence Day, so we can see, over time, the growth of EVs across the nation!
Refer to Plug In America’s Electric Vehicle Guide to see Electric and Plug-In Hybrid (electric and combustion) vehicles currently available.
Message for 350 national:
In just one week, millions of us will be hitting the streets around the world to demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
But we need your help now.
Watch these short video messages of climate strikers talking about why they will be “out of the office/school/home/etc” on September 20th - and share. Or record your own message to share on social media.
We’re out of office. Are you with us?
We are out of patience, out of time, and out of options. We need everyone everywhere - workers, teachers, parents, neighbors - to spread the word and join the youth leading this fight in the streets for climate justice. And you can help.
Get the word out and inspire others to get “out of office” on September 20th. Take two minutes to record your own custom message to your online community, sharing your reasons for joining the Global Climate Strike.
And don’t forget to add the hashtags if you create your own message - use #climatestrike #strikewithus and #outoftheoffice so we can see everything being shared and amplify. And don’t forget to link to globalclimatestrike.net so you spread the word about Global Climate Strikes kicking off in a week, on September 20th.
Ready, set, go! Tell everyone you’ll be out of the office, school, home or wherever you are with our downloadable videos (if you don’t want to record your own, just share one of ours) – and ask others to join you.
Thanks for sharing,
P.S. Haven’t RSVPed for a Climate Strike near you? There are almost 700 actions happening around the country on September 20th so sign up to join one today. ... See MoreSee Less
