Event Report

Plug-In North Central Washington’s kiosk, tent, and EV displays anchored one end of a 3 block stretch of exhibits for the Wenatchee Downtown Association’s annual Taste of Harvest celebration in the city's historic district. Pleasant weather and a lively buzz helped us to interact with over 300 diverse attendees including political candidates, policemen, families, retirees, tourists, teenagers, local team mascot, and face-painted children.

Our exhibits featured a Tesla Roadster, Volt, three Leafs, two Zero motorcycles, Polaris electric bicycles, and an array of battery powered 56-volt yard maintenance tools (chain saw, weed whacker, leaf blower, hedge trimmer). We also had a portable Clipper Creek charger available for hands-on demos. EV grins were bountiful during the demo rides, and there was never a moment when the exhibit was without at least a half-dozen folks inquiring about available and future EVs. A beautiful day that resulted in more EV converts.
