We had the event opened by Satellite Beach City Councilman Steve Osmer who read the official proclamation with the city seal. There were food trucks, Tesla autopark/summon demonstrations, electric bike stunt demos, and the Brevard County Sheriff brought their electric Tron style motorcycle. Four separate solar installers were there as exhibitors as well as a few local dealerships. Tesla Motors even sent a Model S and the portable design studio from Orlando. There were 45 electric vehicles on display and giving ride and drives including home-converted cars and a Zero S Motorcycle. Jim Fenton from the Florida Solar Energy Center gave several speeches about EVs, solar power, and battery technology in between runs of "What is the Electric Car?" movie on a projector inside the Schechter Center. There was a raffle for a few small prizes and gift cards held at the end of the event. Almost 400 attendees were counted!
