Event Report

We had speakers from the Sierra Club, Duke Energy, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and the Solar Shepherd. We had two dealerships participating in ride and drives including one new and one used dealer who specializes in EVs. We also had elected officials from the cities of Tarpon Springs, New Port Richey and Largo come out and speak. We also had Solar United Neighbors come to table about solar co-ops. We also had a booth from an electric cart shop and the City of Largo brought their wrapped LEAF. The event was publicized via Facebook and digital mail distributed through Sierra Club and SACE's distribution lists for the area. Many families/participants came out that day took test drives and spoke with the over 20 drivers who brought their cars out. We also had the South West Florida EV Owners club come out and share about their EV club.
