This was the first NDEW event hosted by CE-CERT. The event was held in the parking lot under the solar canopies. It was a very hot day, so we were all thankful for the shade. We had 10 booths that included, CE-CERT, Plug In America, City of Colton Public Utilities, City of Riverside Public Utilities, American Solar Advantage, KIGT , Inland Empire Biking Alliance, American Lung Association, Southern California AQMD, and our local EV club, EVAOSC. Riverside BMW provide 2 i3's for test drives and Riverside Chevrolet provided a Bolt and a Volt. We had over 25 EV owners show up to show and talk about their cars. We had almost every available EV represented. The star of the show was Ned and his Model X, when he had his car provide a musical show. Everyone was enthralled. We were honored to have as speakers: Matt Barth, Director of CE-CERT; Joel Levin, Executive Director of PIA, and Assembly Member Eloise Gomez Reyes.
