Event Report

This was our inaugural event and was very small. Our opening ceremony included a hula performance by a local charter school. We had great support from our county, (the mayor publicly proclaiming NDEW and making sure the county energy specialist was on hand at the event) and local utility, Kauai Island Utility Coop, otherwise known as KIUC. KIUC took over the insurance and advertising so I have no idea how much they budgeted for the ads and radio spot, as well as the insurance. We also had great support from our shopping mall, Kukui Grove. They graciously provided the display tables and chairs, as well as the posting of the banner. Our local community college, Kauai Community College, was represented by their Electric Vehicle Maintenance class professor, complete with a few participants in his program and working models of a Prius engine and hands-on explanations of how EVs work. This was the highlight of the event for me, personally.
