RideWise’s Let’s Go Electric EV Coalition has provided information and education to local government and businesses since 2020 to help Somerset County achieve its ambitious electric vehicle goals. Stan Jaracz has been a leader in the EV Coalition from its beginning, serving as a technical expert and guest speaker, identifying topics of interest, and securing subject matter experts for Let’s Go Electric webinars.
As the President of the New Jersey Electric Vehicle Association, Stan advocates for the wide-spread adoption of EVs by organizing car shows to educate the public on the benefits of EVs. He has organized a number of EV car shows in Somerset County for National Drive Electric Week at Raritan Valley Community College and Duke Farms, and most recently at Somerville’s October 2023 Street Fair.
“I would like to thank RideWise for establishing the EV Coalition in Somerset County. Being part of the coalition helped me and NJEVA to increase the impact of our work and communicate the benefits of driving electric to broader audiences,” said Stan. “Transitioning to all-electric, clean transportation is crucial for our future well-being and national security, improving air quality, and mitigating climate change. The EV Coalition facilitates conversations among all regional stakeholders to achieve this goal.”
