MD Volt Inc. Beacon Place at the Kentlands Apartments #EV Meetup. Beacon Place provide breakfast and coffee (or water). The residence there are very lucky. And now they have two Semaconnect EV Charging Stations for those with Plug-In Electric Vehicles (#PHEV). Afterward, we all went to Kentlands Day, which was also a blast with lots of activities and things to see. We’ll have to talk with them to see about adding an EV car show for next year.
As part of Poolesville Day, Poolesville Green has coordinated with the town to host the 2014 National Drive Electric Week Car Show. We also had 14 of the cars in the Poolesville Day Parade and 35 Electric Vehicles (EV) and Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PHEV) in the show.
