Event Report

We had a great turn out and are so pleased to have ranked number 10 out of 195 events by registered attendees this year (way to go Waukesha, WI)! I had many EV owners drive here from Illinois and plan to be back next year! We kept the event low key and educational. Nine vendors participated! We provided free food for everyone who registered, Live Music and Bake Sale with proceeds donated to the Hunger Taskforce in Milwaukee. I think if you ask anyone who signed up they would all say they had a great time. This event was a fantastic opportunity for EV Owners and enthusiasts to come together, exchange information, and share their EV driving experience. I received many terrific emails of thanks and praise. We look forward to next year @ #NDEW2016! Until then, #ChargeOn #Waukesha

EVs are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
