    Announcement for the meet-up:


    Hi,

    If you drive a "plug-in" electric car, or are interested in these new cars, and the ability to drive daily on clean, renewable electricity, please consider attending!

    There was a small but successful electric car meetup in April this year.
    It was so successful, and we have more people are asking for another gathering, so lets do it again!

    The great news is Redstone Energy Group (a provider of clean renewable energy solutions) has graciously offered to host our next meet-up at their Huntsville facility in July! I am excited to see their new demonstration facility. It is becoming operational now! They will have electric car stations (EVSE) available for charging our EV's while we chat and learn about the cars, vehicle charging stations, solar-to-electric energy systems, and how this all comes together to provide a future with sustainable clean energy for our vehicles (and other stuff too).


    The Meet-up:

    We want to make it convenient for people with different schedules to be able to make it to one or the other.
    So tentatively we plan to offer two times to meetup.

    Both are on July 16th:
    (1) 11am - 1pm,
    then again,
    (2) from 5pm - 7pm

    We will be able to do both meeting times at the Redstone Energy facility in Huntsville.

    So far one Roadster will be among the electric cars in attendance.
    More are welcome!

    Tennessee Valley EV Drivers group has taken off in the months since the first meetup in April 2012.
    http://www.facebook.com/TennesseeValleyEvDrivers

    They have frequently held public meetups, giving rides/drives in their cars (mostly Volts and LEAFs), with good coverage on TV and the local paper.
    There is a report of a local doctor who has taken delivery of his Model S in Huntsville.
    Hopefully they will make contact with that new Tesla owner and have two Tesla drivers as part of the group to stir interest in electric cars.
