Despite the weather turning very cold, windy, cloudy, we still had a great crowd of people come out. For local sponsors we have 2 local EV dealers join us as well as a local solar company, all-electric lawn care company, and our city's Sustainability Director. We also received support from Plug-in America and Normal Now: Powered by Electrify America.
We had people reaching out after the event that this was exactly what they needed to get their questions answered, see and compare a variety of EVs on the market, and take a test drive or ride-along to feel comfortable making the switch to electric.
