This was The University of North Carolina at Pembroke's first NDEW event, hosted by the Sustainability Office. There were about 45 attendees, who took a total of 13 test drives between either of the two PEVs brought in by local dealers. Helping sponsor the event, Fred Anderson Nissan of Fayetteville, NC came in with a new Nissan Leaf and Dieffenbach GM Superstore of Rockingham, NC came in with a new Chevrolet Volt. Program Coordinators, Kristi Jacobsen Brodd and Katie Drye, both with Advanced Energy out of Raleigh, NC gave presentations and answered questions about PEVs. Food was provided by Campus Dining Services- Sodexo and giveaways were handed out thanks to the many sponsors mentioned above as well as the NDEW team and national event sponsor- Nissan. UNC Pemboke plans to host another event next year, so stay tuned for more information on that! www.uncp.edu/sustainability
