Event Report

Event participants from Tennessee Tech brought their Ford F-150 Lightning with posters describing their Federally-funded project "Rural Reimagined:  Building an EV Ecosystem and Green Economy for Transforming Lives in Economically Distressed Appalachia".  They had the opportunity to present to many visitors, to network with WV EV leaders, and to meet the University President.

We had one of the first Hyundai Ioniq 5s registered in WV on display.  All the members of a class of 4-5 YO preschoolers got a chance to sit in an EV (to tell their parents)!
