The Guelph unveiling of the North American Green Car of the year, Chevrolet Bolt, will occur at the eMERGE EcoMarket in Old Quebec Street Mall on Saturday March 25, 10:00 am to 3:00pm.
“We’re on the threshold of an energy transition in Guelph that is being fueled by battery powered electric vehicles, renewable energy and the internet of things.” said Steve Yessie, eMERGE’s EcoMarket Coordinator. These technologies are coming together at the EcoMarket along with other sustainable living exhibitors and local not-for profits.
Joining Barry Cullen Chevrolet’s Volt and Bolt, Guelph Toyota will have a hybrid Prius on hand. Electric bikes will round off transportation alternatives and will be joined by solar energy and internet enabled systems that help you save money while reducing your energy and water use.
“This 10th anniversary of the EcoMarket is more diverse than ever with everything from low flush toilets to electric cars” said Yessie.
As part of the annual Resilience Festival the eMERGE EcoMarket is one of several exciting events taking place in downtown Guelph on March 25th. In 2016, over 1,700 people joined the EcoMarket on a cold and rainy day.
