Event Report

We held our EV Ride & Drive Event at our Cooperative headquarters, in the parking lot area where we have a DC Fast Charger and a Level 2 Charger. This is also located right next to our 80 kW community solar garden. We had our local television station, many people from the community along with about 10 EV owners with their vehicles. We had 3 Teslas, 3 Chevy Bolts, 2 Chevy Volts, a Nissan Leaf and a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. We provided some cookies and refreshments, along with information about EVs for interested persons. There were a lot of great conversations and a lot of excitement as a result of some of the test drives. We will definitely consider hosting this event again next year!
