Event Report

The Carrboro Plaza Drive Electric Week EVent is a low key affair each year. This one was again setup in the Carrboro Plaza shopping center near the two DC Fast Chargers setup by host PEMC. [They will enter a separate report.]

Our TEVA of NC group is pleased to partner with PEMC and get about 1/2 of the EVs and Plug-in Hybrid EVs at the event. We brought some materials and table top demonstrations from an EVent at the NC Zoo earlier in the day. 

A Rivian R1 etruck visited, as did a 1978 pickup truck conversion. The comparison of the two was striking! We also had a TEVA of NC member join us with her Organic Transit ELF enclosed 3 wheel ebike based Light EV.
