    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - This Saturday, electric vehicle and e-bike enthusiasts throughout Juneau are able to participate in the 9th Annual Juneau EV & E-Bike Round-up

    The Round-Up is sponsored in part by the Juneau Commission on Sustainability. The event will be on Saturday, September 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 300 Egan Drive.

    As part of the Round-Up, organizers said residents can test ride an EV or e-bike, and learn about efforts to get service support for the local Nissan Leaf fleet to EV charging locations. A rally through downtown Juneau will follow at 1 p.m. They encourage EV owners to RSVP to join the rally.

    According to a release from CBJ, Juneau is a national leader in per capita electric vehicle ownership, with one of the fastest-growing EV communities in the country.

    The release further said that CBJ is committed to improving community access to electrified transportation and charging infrastructure as a means to encourage the use of local renewable energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and promote Juneau as a national leader in EV adoption.
