Event Report

"ELECTRIC ROAD TRIP" SCREENING: We hosted a small, intimate screening of our 60-minute, public TV documentary "Electric Road Trip" on Friday Sept 18, 2015 at 7:30pm at The Sound Room in the Hanover, Pennsylvania. After a half hour meet and greet between EV owners and interested residents, and several test rides in a Nissan LEAF, we watched the film, then shared an animated, Q&A afterward that lasted for nearly an hour, including a demo of a new Clipper Creek 240 Volt EV charging station. One couple who attended drove their Tesla Model S all the way from Columbia, Maryland to join us as they continued on their way to another National Drive Electric Week event in New Jersey. Thanks to Shannon Lanier, owner of the Sound Room for donating his venue The Sound Room for the Pennsylvania premiere of this documentary, and for this opportunity to reach out to interested parties in a region with almost no electric vehicles or infrastructure.

Event Description


SCREENING: Electric Road Trip: Join filmmakers Jonathan Slade and Novia Campbell for a screening of their Emmy Award winning 60-minute documentary chronicling their attempt to drive a fully electric Nissan LEAF all the way across the state of Maryland. Along the way, they stop at roadside attractions, chat with locals about transportation history, meet other early adopters, and assess the current state of EV charging infrastructure. Informative and entertaining, Electric Road Trip was shot entirely on 4 high definition GoPro cameras, and hopes to spark conversations about how travel needs to evolve in the 21st century. The screening is free and open to the public. Filmmaker Q&A to follow the show.
