Event Report

We had a great EVent in Houston at IKEA. They are great with us. Kae Bruney is always very nice and accommodating. They provided the space, had coffee and cookies for us, they also had charging stations. They also have 800 KW of solar on the roof! One of the largest solar installations on commercial real estate in Houston.

Next year we will do a better job of reaching out to the press.

Thanks to all national staff of EAA, Plug in America, and Sierra Club, worked so hard to pull off this EVent all over the world.
