Event Report

We finally talked the Bellmead Walmart into letting us have an EVent one row over from the Electrify America DCFCs. We were in a high-traffic, highly visible location and we certainly turned a lot of heads.... we lost count at 827 vehicles that drove by very slowly looking at our setup. Only 8 of the shy-but-curious conservatives were brave enough to interact at the event but it's a small town so I know that over the next few weeks we will be approached by random people in random places and the random short conversations will begin.
We met only one local EV owner, all the others were traveling to Dallas or Austin.

Our favorite part of the event: seeing more than 40 BEVs at the charging station....19 different models, 12 different manufacturers.
