Event Report

Our event included many EVs such as the Testa Model S, Nissan leaf, Chevy Volt, BMW i3, Mitsubishi i-MiEV, a converted 1984 Jeep C7, and the University of Texas Solar Car.
The weather that day was a bit toasty at 95 degrees, but we this was better than the rainy events of previous years. We had presentations from Austin Energy, Native Solar, and Smart Charge Residential. Austin Energy went over their new Time of Use program and showed who Austin was planning to have EV infrastructure in new developments.
Native Solar discussed everything one needs to know about how to get solar panels to charge your car. Smart Charge Residential explained the history of EVs
and demo'd home chargers.

As expected, EV drivers were eager to show visitors their cars. A chevy volt owner had lots of show and tell items. We had vendors and other organizations that attended
such as Lone Star Clean fuels Alliance (who helped sponsor the event.)
