Event Report

Bigger and better attended than last year. Great weather, too! No politicians. Mostly it was the owners meeting and chatting with each other, far out-numbering non-owners most of the time. Still, it was an enjoyable and successful event in the eyes of all participants/attendees. It was well promoted by me in my weekly column that appeared in the Denver Post and 4 local weekly newspapers on the Thursday prior. In light of that it was a disappointing turn-out to me, but fine in everyone else's opinion! We had four Tesla Model 3s show up, one with 26 miles on the odometer because the owner brought it directly from taking delivery of it in Littleton!

Event Description


This is our fifth year hosting Drive Electric Week.  Our office is totally solar-powered (including HVAC), and we have four EV charging stations in our parking lot.  Three are Level 2, and one is a Tesla 240V charging station.  Come and mingle with owners, some of whom will offer rides "around the block."  In past years we've had 15 or so EVs and their owners attend this event.
