Event Report

We felt it was a great event not only for Spirit employees to see new and exciting technology, but also executives to begin thinking about workplace charging opportunities at the Wichita facility. The CFO of Spirit was generous enough to display his personal Tesla Model S. We also had a 1918 Detroit Electric on display which is owned by another Wichita native. Central Kansas Clean Cities felt that this event was a huge success for EV consumer education and an important step to implementing workplace charging in the region. We could not have had such a successful event without the help of Spirit Aerosystems, McGavock Nissan, Eddy's Chevy, Rusty Eck Ford, BYD, and Westar Energy.
