Event Report

There were six EV models at the event, including a Chevrolet Bolt, Mini Cooper SE Hard Top, Tesla 3, 2- Toyota Prius (1 was a Prime) and Toyota RAV 4 Prime.  Owners answered questions and showed their vehicles. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we did not do test drives.
We had approximately 100 attendees, some of which were students from the local schools.
Elected officials included: Bob Gardner, Mono County BOS, Berry Beck, Mono County Assessor
The event was held at one of the few locations in our County that has universal charging stations. It is also powered with a solar pavilion that local residents proposed and funded.
We would like to thank Drive Electric, Plug in America, Edison International, Mono 350, Mammoth Lakes Recreation, High Sierra Energy Foundation and the Eastern Sierra EV Association for their support in making this a successful event.
