Event Report

People seemed more interesed in EVs this year. Our local utility, a PV dealer and our local Nissan dealer contacted me asking to participate. This was a first!
Our local EV drivers were just as willing as ususal to come and tell their story.
The Nissan, Mitsubishi and Mini Cooper dealers sent cars. all other car dealers were unresponsive. I also invited 3 bicycle shops that sell electric bikes. None of them showed up.
