Event Report

The Franklin High School organized Green Fair as part of their Sustainable Jersey for Schools efforts. This was the first time so they had no prior experience. They asked NJEVA to coordinate EV show as part of the Green Fair.
We have had 10 EVs prepared for the show, including Polestar dealership that even offered ride & drives. 
Unfortunately, we were forced to cancel the EV show component due to the rain, while all other activities were moved into the school lobby. We have set up a table indoors and provided information to attendees, including our popular spinning wheel that has various puzzling questions related to EVs. 
Somerset County Commissioner Paul M. Drake stopped by our table and we had a productive discussion on how can NJEVA help the county promote EVs through their Transportation Management Agency - RideWise. We do have long standing collaboration with RideWise.

Old EVs are welcome as well to demonstrate the longevity of the technology. All attendees will receive window sticker and pin with the logo of Electric Vehicle Association.
