CNBC has reported that, according to International Energy Agency (IEA), electric vehicles (EV) will grow from 3 million to 125 million by the year 2030 - that is a huge increase in a short amount of time! Will your property be ready to handle this influx? Join us on Wednesday, June 5 for a luncheon paving the road for electric cars in your future. Owners and property managers need to be ready to answer questions from tenants. Join us to learn so you are prepared to ride out this next revolution in transportation.
