Are DEED event was part of the Montgomery County Greenfest greater event. Our DEED event was organized by Poolesville.Green in coordination with One Montgomery Green and local EV groups. Our space only allowed for 12 EVs, but they were supported by other EV owners. We had the first in the nation Police EV Chevy Bolt from the Hyattsville City Police Department as well as a Zero Motorcycle. Montgomery County Police, as well as the Park Police, was very interested in learning more about them. We had the manufacturer Audi and local dealership Fitzgerald participating. The day had a continuous flow of excited and inquisitive visitors. The event was a resounding success and we will do it again next year.
