Event Report

Live webcast cancelled due to weather. I liked that there were a range of attendees. First timers and experts. The twice webcast was helpful as other could join at another time. Many topics discussed such as power options, IE wind,solar, and vehicle types, IE autos and motorcycles.
Had a few attendees from California, Michigan. We discussed suburbs VS city programs-alot of great info exchanged between presentor from participants.

Event Description


Event Update- 04/24

I am going to have 2 event times today 11:30 am and 4:00pm

My name is Chris and I live in the south suburbs of Chicago. I have been a full-time EV owner for just over 4 years. I am hosting an online event this year to share my experiences with you, and answer any questions.

My event will be hosted live throughout the day. I encourage and welcome you to share your EV experience with others during this time. There will also be a revolving presentation during "non live" break times throughout the day. I look forward to seeing you all on Zoom and in case of any tech issues I will also have a Microsoft "Teams" platform as an alternative. I will have the links to join the event posted here, as they become available. Thank you for signing up, Chris
