Event Report

This was our first EV so we really didn't know what to expect for turnout but we were happy with the 40 EV owners who came to share information about their cars! The event was from 10am to 2pm and we had about 600 non EV owners come to check out the new/used EVs and chat with the EV owners. We also had electric golf cart and electric bike vendors scheduled to show and test drive. Solar energy companies were also invited so we has a little something for everyone.
Mayor Marlowe was first in our line-up of EVs and was interviewed by two Tampa news channels and the local paper.
The EV owners were very happy with the lay out of the event and the vendors were very happy with the contacts they made with potential EV buyers.
