Event ReportConnecting EVs with Renewable Energy was the theme of this year's event and resonated with our participants. This however was the first time that NO dealers showed up to promote their cars despite a strong effort by our volunteers and staff. Even the dealer that sponsored the event didn't bring a car. Electric bicycles proved as popular as ever with a record breaking amount of rides. We also had two electric motorcycles show up. 285 dollars worth of 5 dollar gift certificates for food were redeemed by test drivers and volunteers. Our impromptu photo of 34 of the EVs that showed up is, as far as we know, a record for the most EVs in a picture in Maine. We will plan on doing this again next year with better planning to get closer and have the banner and cars fill the image.
