EV Trivia Nite: This is You Winning Big
Date: Thursday, 9/30 at 7:00pm
This event was too fun to record! (Actually, Zoom doesn’t allow you to record events when breakout groups are involved). But trust us, we had fun as we formed teams and tackled trivia questions like “Why do EVs still have a “regular” 12v car battery?” and “By how much does switching to an EV reduce your carbon emissions?” We even got comedian Denise Stewart to join in on the fun.
No recording available.
