    Tampa Bay

    region launches

    plug-in electric vehicle partnership

    Join the Get Ready Tampa Bay team, elected officials and leaders in the Tampa Bay region at the launch of the region’s plug-in electric vehicle “get ready” initiative.

    The United States has a goal of having at least 1 million plug-in electric vehicles on the road in the next five years. Get Ready Tampa Bay will help identify potential challenges and develop solutions to make this goal a reality. The use of electric transportation will reduce our regions dependence on foreign oil, improve air quality, and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    Date: Tuesday, June 22, 2010

    Time: 10:00 a.m. – Noon

    Press Conference at 10:30 a.m

    Location: Tropicana Field parking lot #6,

    1299 3rd Ave S

    St. Petersburg, fl

    (Map Link)

    Electric car “drive and ride” demonstrations will be offered.

    Get Ready Tampa Bay is a regional collaboration between the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, local governments, Rocky Mountain Institute, Progress Energy Florida, Tampa Electric, Florida Power & Light, business partners, and other groups interested in preparing Tampa Bay for the roll-out of electric vehicles in the next few years. Cities and regions that demonstrate they are getting “plug-in ready” will attract the vehicle manufacturers to launch in their area. For more information on Get Ready Tampa Bay, visit
