Event Report

We hosted our local event in downtown Santa Cruz for the first time. We estimated about 800 people who came through including some of our elected officials. The event featured 20 electric vehicles with many on display and several available for test drives. We also partnered with several local bike shops to offer electric bike test rides. We had 20 electric bikes of all different types and had over 45 e-bike test rides. We had many booth partners who provided community members with information and resources including from local solar companies (one of which brought a solar array and we were able to plug in one of our EVs on display to demonstrate charging), our local Air District, the City of Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay Community Power and more.
