I'll also look into whether there is a New Mexico organization similar to the Colorado group mentioned by ARob. If I hear any good news, I'll report back.
There is a national organization: DRIVE Electric USA, Department of Energy Partnership
and NM does not appear to be in the program. Here is a guide to forming a group in your state: Electric Vehicle Adoption Resources Page 1 of 0 | DRIVE Electric USA
Here is the NM Energy Office site: ECMD Home - Energy Conservation and Management
or Home - EMNRD
Also, there is a Clean Cities organization in NM: Clean Cities Coalition Network: Land of Enchantment Clean Cities (New Mexico)
and maybe there is one in ABQ too?
My understanding is the Federal DOE funds both Drive Electric (some of which trickles to the state organizations), and each state's Energy Office. I expect as federal infrastructure funds start to roll out, they will go to state Energy Offices to be dispersed in grants and that Drive Electric Organizations will support grant applicants, that is how it works here anyway.
In CO (and NM apparently), there is yet another layer, a Clean Cities coalition that is also funded in a similar fashion and the Drive Electric folks are actually paid by, and a part of the Clean Cities coalition organization. They in turn make connections with local EV car clubs like Denver Electric Vehicle Coalition, Colorado Springs EV Club, etc. I got involved via the CS EV Club, and we cross promote and participate in Drive Electric and other EV related events. I have done some training, coaching, and exhibiting at a number of events wearing both hats.
I would start with your Clean Cities organization to see if they have any interest in establishing a Drive Electric organization to represent EV owners and advocates interests. Also reach out to any local EV clubs in your state, they may already be working to establish an advocacy group to work with EMNRD and LoECC? If they are already starting down the path, they may be eager for more volunteers.
If CO is a typical approach, Clean Cities is where you get linked into advocating for public charging infrastructure. I am sure they would be thrilled to have feet on the street to support them and a Drive Electric group seems a good way to organize that.
It may be they are simply waiting for someone to step in and create something like this. But it seems like it could be rewarding to someone who is motivated to take a strong advocacy position. Interestingly, in CO many of the Clean Cities\Drive Electric folks ARE NOT EV owners. A few at the top of the chain are, but many are simply tasked by Clean Cities to do the Drive Electric work.
Good luck if you intend to jump in and try to organize something like this!
