Event Report

Brian Schatz sent a representative with a letter of support from Brian. Margaret Willie (County Representative) was there. Will Roltson (Hawaii County Energy Czar) sent a Volt and representative.

We had a large turnout of guest and owners. About a dozen LEAFs and as many Volts, one Tesla and sveral conversions! Very entusiastic participants. Many curious guest who were very interested in switching to electric. Many guests signed up to our local EV association. A very successful event! Thank you to all who participated.

The local cable channel did many interviews which will be broadcast locally.
