Event Report

This was a tabling event at Earth Day Green Festival in Springfield a small rural KY town. We had an Evolve KY table set up with a number of laminated information sheets and Plug in America Vehicle guides. We spoke to a goodly number of people and "converted" quite a few. I gave seven rides and  seven drives.  Each was about 7-10 miles. I drove out to demonstrate the acceleration and regenerative braking. Then traded places and let the drivers drive "like the owned it". It was impressive, fun, and had all of them "converted" before returning!
