Our Memphis event was a success. It was a special Memphis day, sunny and in
the 70s. Whole Foods Market was gracious to host our event. They povided us with the entire front row for parking our electric vehicles and the use of their Level 2 charger.

They included 2 Mitsubishi Mievs, 3 Chevy Volts, 4 Nissan Leafs, 1 BMW i3, 1 BMW i8, 1 Tesla Model S, and 2 hand made electric bicycles.
