Event Report

We had a great event at the Little Rock Zoo on April 23rd, with two dozen EVs in attendance and about 100 people interacting with our participants.

Our onsite press conference was very successful, resulting in excellent coverage in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Arkansas Times, KTHV (CBS-TV affiliate) and KUAR (local NPR affiliate). At the event, we heard remarks from Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr., Little Rock City Director Kathy Webb, and our partners at Entergy Arkansas and Adopt A Charger. We concluded the event by having Mayor Scott formally dedicated the Zoo's new EV charging stations by plugging in the vehicle of an event participant.

Special thanks to Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr., and Kathy Webb, Little Rock City Director, Ward 3, to our event partners at Littlerock Zoo, Entergy Arkansas, Adopt a Charger, Evolve Auto, the Arkansas Energy Office, and to the 24 EV owners who showed up with their rides.
