Event Report

Saturday's Drive Electric Earth Day Event in Lonoke was a success in spite of the downpour. You can't rain on our parade!!
We had 22 EVs that made a convoy from Little Rock to Lonoke, where Mayor Reed cut the ribbon on the (6) new EVCS in the downtown area. 
We are already making plans for the National Drive Electric Week event scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 25th at the Little Rock Zoo. Two improvements would be to have a test drive loop to allow people to experience driving some plug-in cars, and having a designated parking area for the EV drivers to congregate. Attendees like to see a variety of different makes and models and this will allow them to ask questions of owners. The event at the Little Rock Zoo has the added benefit of walk by traffic, so we can gain exposure to people that are visiting the Zoo. Look forward to keeping you in the loop as plans progress.
