On September 17, 2016, our association held a 2-hour event at the WikiFresh in Hilo. We had about 50 people attend the event.
We had participation from many of our members, representatives from several companies, and (importantly) people who were genuinely interested in electric car ownership, charging stations, and features and functions of various EVs. Our guests had many questions addressed and walked away with many informational brochures.
We even had the pleasure of meeting a Plug In America founder, Mike Kane! He was accompanied by Cathy Lam (a founder of Our1World.org, an international organization that promotes sustainability).
We had a good showing of EVs at our event.
