The weather was fantastic, we started at 11 am and had a DJ, setup started at about 8 am in the morning. Our normal venue was being demolished but I think we did fine. A bit more shade would have been helpful. We started off with a prize drawing and there were only about 20 tickets in the tumbler so everyone had a great chance. Tim Dahle Nissan and Nissan put in about $3300 in Prizes and another $700 or so was brought by speakers and other car manufacturers. People from Blue Monkey Bicycles, Zero Motorcycles, Tesla, Utah Green News, Purpleair.org, University of Utah UDrive, Utah Clean Energy, Utah Clean Cities, NRG EVGo, Nissan, Joshnsavesenergy.com spoke and the crowd I think was appreciative and attentive and of course loved the prizes. There were drinks, Sept. 12, 2016 – In a joint press conference today, the University of Utah and Salt Lake City will announce the launch of an electric vehicle purchase program extending discounts on multiple makes and models of vehicles.
