Event Report

I want to take this time to thank Meaghan Boice-Green, Center Director of the Reinstein Woods Environmental Education Center for allowing us the opportunity to show our EV's and help answer a lot of questions about them.  We had 14 EV's at the event including Ford F150 Lighting, Lucid Air and a Toyota bZ4x.  Of course we have a nice selections of Tesla's including Model Y, Model 3 and a Model S.  I think we had a nice variety of vehicles EV's, everyday drivers, road tripping models and high end EV's.  

I spoke with several people that were in the market for an EV or soon to be in the market and I feel that I was able to help them with several questions that they had.  There is a lot of misinformation out there as well as a lot of new information that people have to learn.  Being able to have those one on one conversation about EV's is giving these consumers complementary information to what they are finding on their one.  For example I had a conversation with a person that recently purchased a Toyota RAV4 Prime PHEV. They had heard about off peak electric billing and were thinking of switching to it.  I asked them to make sure they first tracked how they were charging their RAV4 and how many kWh they were putting into their car.  It might not make sense to switch to this plan if their usage is greatest during normal daytime hours.  They had not even thought about that. 

These conversations and sharing my experiences with people were my favorite part of the day.  I wish I could have spent more time with folks discussing these things.
