Event Report

Great Success!
The third annual NDEW day in Exeter NH was enjoyed by all. Held right smack in the center of the historic downtown on a Sunday morning, many folks going by on their way to church or a coffee shop caught site of the festivities. Twenty local owners showcased and two dealerships brought down three cars to give test drives (30 in total). The local cable channel filmed bits, and that will air soon on the town cable channel. The press came and took a test drive, and wrote a nice front page story that will give the flavor to those who didn't make it that day. ( https://www.seacoastonline.com/story/news/local/2021/10/01/exeter-electric-cars-owners-dispel-anxieties-buying/5919209001/ )

This event is has become the signature event for the town energy committee. In our third year, we have it running like clockwork: 3 members to help the showcase cars park, 2 to staff the test drive sign-up table, and 2 to staff the "Free Coffee and Freebies"  info table/s. The coffee is donated by a local solar company, because we have no budget for this event. According to the town clerk, Exeter NH (pop 14K) has 400 EV's and PHEVs registered. We are hoping to double that by next year. (But then there is that chip shortage thing right now. Dang)

A couple of local dealerships will bring vehicles to test drive. Sign up with Lew and Camille at the test drive table in the side parking lot of the Exeter Town Hall. Observe COVID protocol during rides, keep windows open, etc

Local owners of EV's will park at the bandstand with their hoods up so you may peek inside. Browse their vehicles and ask your questions about their experiences as EV owners. Wear a mask or stay 6 feet apart please.

Note to local owners! If you would like to showcase your car, please use the Participate button below. Being on olde, historic town center, parking is limited. First come, first serve. Please note: You may not give test rides to attendees, we have no insurance for that.
