Event ReportThis event was held in tandem with the local farmers market so there was a lot of back and forth traffic between the two events, which was great! A local dealer brought the new Ford Mach-E, and a local solar company brought their brand-new Tesla Model Y, both of which were big draws. Several people who attended were on the fence about EVs, but many of them came away feeling much more enthusiastic about driving electric. There was a reporter/photographer there from the local newspaper who wrote up a short article about the event: Feeling the buzz: Bennington County energy experts share their love, knowledge of energy-efficient transportation | Local News | benningtonbanner.com
