Event Report

We had members of the Melbourne, Fl City Council as well as Mayor of Melbourne, FL Kathy Meehan on hand to open the event and read a NDEW proclamation. Due to significant, sustained bad weather we had numerous rain delays and some EV owner and Exhibitor cancellations. However most of the vendors and attendees braved the storms taking shelter under exhibitor tents, in the city parking deck, or under cover of an umbrella. FPL provided a caricature artist for the event which was a huge hit, and the city of Melbourne provided a DJ for the event. We held demo sessions with a L2 Schneider Electric EVlink in home charger to show attendees how simple it is to plug in. We closed the event with an EV caravan through the down town strip which included 3 Tesla model s, a Tesla roadster, a Porsche Panamera e-hybrid, leafs, volts, an i3, 2 ford fusion energis, a Rav4EV, and a Plugin Prius.
