The Durham event featured 20 electric vehicles including 2 from PortCity Nissan, 2 from BMW of Stratham, 6 Tesla's including a solar charged Roadster, 2 BMW i3s, 5 Nissan Leaf's, 2 Volts, and one Ford C-Max Energi. At 1PM, state representatives, the state Department of Environmental Services, and a crowd of about 100 people gathered for some short speeches and a ribbon cutting on our new dual charging station. There was free food, drink, give aways from Nissan and T-Shirts from the vendors, and even an electric bike vendor giving test drives. Additional planning and climate organizations were also invited including some solar companies who emphasized charging through solar arrays. Guests included most of our Town Council, State Representatives, our Town Administrator, and officials from state agencies. Crowds were good all day from 12-4 and we say at least 24 test drives go out from the Nissan and BMW dealers. We got valuable feedback on our charger's signage and pricing.
