About Us

DriveElectricND is a collaborative group of citizens, businesses, utilities and stakeholders who support electric vehicle usage in North Dakota, by encouraging awareness and sound policies. D.E.ND is organized for the promotion, advancement and growth of electric vehicle use in North Dakota using locally sourced energy. We believe in the environmental and economic benefits of driving electric vehicles, and we aim to bring these benefits to drivers.


We operate on the principals of Education, Communication, and Advocacy.

EDUCATE – the public at large of the relative advantages of electric vehicles, noteworthy developments, and the availability of all sources of electricity
COMMUNICATE – to be a resource for citizens, organizations and stakeholders for electric vehicle expertise in North Dakota, including technical, scientific and policy development
ADVOCATE – fair and equitable policies to encourage the operation of electric vehicles on North Dakota roadways, allowing the private sector and free market to drive the demand.


DriveElectricND works to educate and advocate for drivers of electric vehicles. It is important to advocate in government so that we can help give lawmakers the information they need to create policies that foster innovation in electricity and electric vehicles. We want drivers to enjoy significant transportation savings while creating a more sustainable future. North Dakota’s broad variety of energy resources allow drivers stable and reliable power for transportation. We will continue working with drivers and government to communicate the benefits of driving electric.
