Event ReportDouble the attendance of last year as this site is next to the Kaukauna farmers market. We had ample room here to test park assist and summon features on some cars. At least a half dozen show cars got free hydro juice from Kaukauna utilities hydro power plant at this site. We hope to charge more cars next year if more chargers are installed. You can see pictures of the total power of the hydro at this site called badger plant on our photo link as well as more shots of our activities. Please join us again at this site next year for even more cars and activities.

You could see and hear the sights and sound of hydro power generated near the park that borders the canal that feeds the Badger plant in the foreground. Over 6000kw of pure clean hydro power from the fox river was being produced that day. See more pictures at our link.

This drive electric car show will be overlooking the hydroelectric utility that provides power for Kaukauna, also called electric city of 20,000 on the Fox River in north eastern Wisconsin. It’s a great opportunity to charge on hydro power, and show your electric vehicle (EV) at this nationally organized event. Please register your car and consider sponsoring or exhibiting at this annual event in this extraordinary location. Get fresh produce across the road at the regular farmers market, see a hydro electric exhibit in the park and find local shopping, restaurants and demonstrations of hydro power nearby.
