Event Report

The event was at the weekly Farmers Market, and 500+ people saw that we were having the plug-in electric car show. Due to the crowded venue, we didn't offer test rides.
Many attendees talked to car owners/enthusiasts, a nonprofit organization that has a group buy discount program for EVs, a State representative that promotes alternative fuel vehicles for transportation, and car dealership sales people.
Quincy's Mayor Koch thanked the businesses that currently offer public charging stations, and announced plans to install municipal public charging stations, including at the new Central Middle School, which is under construction.
