Event Report

We held our first Green Expo in Trotwood, Ohio where we had 15 different EV's to show/educate our citizens. We offered a "Ride & Drive" with 30 test rides/drives given. Sponsors/exhibitors/partners we want to thank include: Sisters of the Precious Blood, Trotwood Community Improvement Corporation, Evans Dealer Group, AAbel, Universal 1 Credit Union, Solar Power & Light, Electrify America, Marriott University of Dayton, Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, EcoFlow, Drive Electric Dayton, Electric Auto Association, Aullwood Audubon, Trotwood-Madison Educational Foundation, Auto Zone, Home Depot, Lowe's.

Our popular EV's proved to be the VW ID.4's and the Ford Mustang Mach E. Drive Electric Dayton members provided test drives and the citizens were elated to see and drive/ride in.

We structured our event to make it a recurrent event every year. We promote sustainable products that serve our residents not only due to the future diverse greening revolution brings but especially because we are working to bring equity to our community with current products available, such as solar power for homes, portable emergency generators (solar powered/electric), charging stations for EV's - a must for the growth of electric vehicles.
