We had great weather and a successful event. We had a good turnout - around 100 visitors during the 4-hour period. Many people had questions about EVs and several were keenly interested in purchasing and wanted to know more. Many came to check out and test drive the latest electric cars.
Several companies joined the event. They handed out materials and fielded questions about EVs, PV, electric bikes, charging stations, and emerging services.
We addressed many questions regarding EV ownership, charging, and buying experiences. We also distributed had a large number of informational handouts from our national organizers and issues of Electric Car Insider.
