Learn About Electric Vehicles at EV Expo Hosted by SRP, City of Mesa

More and more drivers are investing in electric vehicles as automakers are coming out with new models that have longer ranges at affordable prices. These new, emission-free vehicles will need electricity and SRP is preparing for a future where more customers will be plugging in at home, at work and at public charging stations.

To help our customers make informed decisions about electric vehicles, SRP has teamed up with the City of Mesa to host the 2019 Electric Vehicle Expo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2 at Mesa Red Mountain Park.

SRP customers will be able to see the latest models from Tesla, Jaguar, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Chevy and Nissan. They can explore vehicles hands-on, watch demonstrations of EV charging stations and learn about other cutting-edge electronic technologies as well as talk with EV experts about available options.

Customers can also enter to win various prizes, including a Google Nest thermostat, a remote control Audi i8 and an energy efficiency gift basket. Food trucks will also be on-site.

As part of the SRP 2035 Sustainability Goals, SRP is committed to supporting the enablement of 500,000 EVs in SRP’s service territory and provide programs and price plans to manage up to 90 percent of EV charging. In addition, SRP has the largest workplace charging program in Arizona for employees who drive electric vehicles.
