Palo Alto's EV Extravaganza was a complete success with 125 participants, 33 EVs and 100 ride and drives given over 3 hours. Highlights included the number of new 1st time EV owners (EV obtained within the last 18 months) who wanted to share the joy of EV driving and all the benefits; participation by numbers of families (Mom, Dad, Kids, even a grandfather in tow) who showed up to test the various EVs; and the overall camaraderie of all the EV drivers!
It was also interesting to hear conversations like: "I've just got an EV and I'm going solar in the next 6 months" or "I've got solar and i'm going to get an EV in the next 6 months!" People recognizing that they can not only power their homes from solar power but also their cars!
