Event ReportExpress CU was happy to have hosted our first in person Drive Electric Event. We had a 2019 Nissan Leafe, 2015 Nissan Leaf and 2017 Tesla. All three drivers were very enthusiastic about their cars and happy to share info. We had an information table with resources provided by City of Seattle, Puget Sound Clean Air, Plug in America, Forth, Paramount Motors and Express CU. we hadn't promoted the in person event due to COVID and current event restrictions in the County. Therefore we focused on existing members and providing education and information to them. We had a prize wheel which was received well by the visitors. Thank you to Plug in America for your partnership and support. It was also great to see Jeff Finn stop by and talk to some people!
