Event Report

We had a good event.  While in past years we have had a ride-and-drive at this event, that was not possible this year due to City of Folsom logistics.  Many families came to see the Electricity Fair exhibits and children's activities and were pleased to get to see and learn about EV's.  We had a nice selection of vehicles, including a number of Teslas (including a Roadster), a Hyundai, a couple of Kia's, a Fiat, and a Nissan. 

Our volunteers spoke to nearly 500 people about their EV experiences and were able to answer many questions regarding the vehicles themselves and charging of vehicles.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out and brought your cars to share!
