Event Report

We had two reporters show up. One was from Voice of America, who showed up in her own red Tesla and interviewed me and other participants on video, and the other reporter was from our local newspaper, the Golden Transcript. Their article appeared on the top half of page one the following Thursday. Here's an online version of it: http://goldentranscript.net/stories/Getting-amped-for-electric-cars,198266?branding=11&
We also created a 2-minute narrated YouTube video using our drone flying over the parking lot. Here's the URL for it: https://youtu.be/ge4uodZGKZ0

Event Description

 

Bring your plug-in electric vehicles!  We have three Level 2 charging stations and one 240-Volt Tesla charging station. There will be ride & drive opportunities in Teslas, Volts, and other electric vehicles.  The event will be promoted on page 3 of four local weekly newspapers and on page 3 of that Thursday's Denver Post YourHub section delivered throughout Jefferson County and the foothills, so we're expecting many unregistered participants, too.
