Farmingdale State College to Host Electric Vehicle Symposium and Ride & Drive


On Friday, October 14th, Farmingdale State College will host its annual Electric Vehicle, EV Symposium and Ride and Drive. The college is partnering with Drive Electric LI to host the event, which will bring local utilities and EV manufacturers together to educate attendees on the industry today and where it is heading for the future. This event is free for attendees, and the focus of this event will be on both consumer and fleet EVs.
The days events will begin with a panel of speakers from vehicle manufacturers, followed by a panel of speakers on EV and charger incentives, including representatives from PSEG LI, NYSERDA, the NY State Department of Transportation, NYPA, and Empire Clean Cities.
Manufacturers will have vehicles present for attendees to test drive around a track starting from Farmingdale State College’s Campus Center. The Ride and Drive will be managed by Electric Drive LI, and drivers will be able to choose from several electric vehicles to test drive. Drivers are asked to present their driver’s license to participate.
“Electric vehicles are not just the future but are here and now, so Farmingdale State College is thrilled to be bringing EV manufacturers, New York State agencies, are local utility and advocates together with hundreds of attendees to test drive electric vehicles and share information about incentives for EVs and charging infrastructure,” said Marjeneh Issapour, Director of the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center at Farmingdale State College.
