Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association is an all-volunteer, non-profit educational, support, and advocacy organization that promotes electric vehicles.
GGEVA is a chapter of the Electric Auto Association, a non-profit 501(c)3 educational organization. GGEVA’s primary activities are in Marin County and San Francisco, California.
Electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, bikes, buses, trains, and boats provide emission-free, efficient, and quiet transportation. These vehicles are powered only by electricity and use no fossil fuels.
Even accounting for the pollution associated with some electric power plants, electric vehicles are the least-polluting, most economical, and most efficient means of transportation other than walking or riding bicycles. Where the electricity is produced by solar panels or wind turbines, electric vehicles run on sunshine and the wind.
GGEVA members partner with other organizations, government agencies, companies, vehicle manufacturers, and individuals to promote the use and production of electric vehicles and the expansion of the infrastructure to support electric mobility regardless of vehicle type.
GGEVA was founded in 2004 as the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association. The name was changed to Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Association in 2011 to more accurately reflect the area served by the organization.
