Event Report

Despite a cool rainy day, we had over 160 people attend, 19 cars on display or for test drives, and even a food truck. Central Maine motors came with 4 EVs, and the turnout was so good, they brought in two more. There were four private Teslas for viewing and one of them gave numerous test drives. The two non-profits and three solar PV vendors in attendence were glad to be in the field house because of the weather.

We got front page press coverage in the Waterville paper:
