Hey Sassy Peeps,
A few weeks ago, I partnered with Florida Power & Light Company to learn about their new FPL EVolution Program and to also take the fabulous and electric @teslamotors M3 (loaned by Southern Alliance for Clean Energy – SACE) for a spin around West Palm Beach.
While driving the beautiful sedan I learned that there are dozens of places to charge an electric vehicle around the Palm Beach area? So Angela Cruz, from @angelacruztube and I decided to stop at a few. Yes, I know the Model 3 gets a whopping 310-mile range, and no we didn’t drive that far. However, if you follow my journey you already know that I am ALL about the experience. So we had to stop at a few of my favorite places in the area to plug in and top off the charge.
However, if you do manage to get caught in the driving experience and become really low in range. No need to worry! FPL EVolution is making Florida a leader in sustainable transportation! The program will install more than 1000 charging ports around the state, including at Florida’s Turnpike service plazas and popular destinations. #FPLEVolution.
