Event ReportWe had great attendance at the Farmers Market EV showcase. Thanks to our main sponsor, Wells Fargo, and our exhibitors: 100% Iowa, Sierra Club of Iowa, Iowa Clean Cities Coalition, Tesla, Mid-American Energy, and 1 Source Solar. We had many Chevy Bolts, a couple each of Chevy Volt, Tesla Model 3, and Zero motorcycles, and a VW ID.4 on display for attendees to view and speak with owners.
This EV gathering is attached to, and occurs during, the Valley Junction Farmer's Market on September 30th from 4pm to 8pm in West Des Moines. Visitors can come see a variety of electric vehicles on display and speak with the owners to learn their experiences.
Representatives from Tesla and other manufacturers are expected to be on hand with new models that even may be available for a test drive!
