National Drive Electric Week Event - Reading
|Day:||Saturday, September 17, 2016 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||10am - 2pm|
Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD)
230 Ash Street
Reading, MA 01867
RMLD hosted the event at its offices, showing the vehicles right next to the road. The showcase had vehicles from dealers and local owners. The owners walked around with the other people, talking about their cars and general ownership tips as well. There was an information booth with RMLD, state and federal information listed. We also had one dealership available for test drives. The general impression was good. The owners definitely liked being able to interact with each other and all of them were more than happy to discuss the perks of owning a vehicle. We were able to have both RMLD customers and out-of-territory owners talking about how they use their vehicles in their daily lives.
