Event Report

The plug-in event was part of the larger Renewable Roundup and Green Living fair held in Fredericksburg in the Texas hill country. In addition to an excellent panel with experts from solar, EV owners, incentive providers and those providing EV charging stations, the event led to some good news for EV drivers: a local flower shop owner with a shop on the main street agreed to put a charging station at the parking space in front of her store. In addition, others present made verbal commitment to put charging stations in Junction, Mason and at the Observatory in the Davis Mountains. Thus, if all these verbal commitments occur, a Tesla driver could go from San Antonio or Austin all the way to West Texas with charging stations within 150 miles.. Stay tuned for more info!
