We were invited out to the Earth Day Event on April 22, 2016 to display our personal electric vehicles at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center right next to the Rocket Park. This was a great honor to be parked so close to some historical hardware like the actual walkway from the launch pad where the astronauts that walked on the moon walked across before climbing into the Apollo capsule. We were set up right next to the Proterra 100% electric city bus and some other home made EVs like the solar powered three wheeler and another three wheeler with a trunk full of batteries. One of the highlights of the day was being able to talk to the young kids about electric cars and explaining how they work and what makes them better than gasoline cars and why we decided to drive them. They all agreed that the future would be full of solar power and electric cars. We also tested out the brand new and FREE EV charging stations the Kennedy Space Center installed just a week ago. So now if you have an EV you can visit the space center and charge up your car for free while you’re parked. Thanks, KSC! One of our founders, Josh Pritt, was also interviewed by the NASA Learning Network and the video was posted online. We had a great time and will be looking forward to many more events at KSC as well as using the chargers when visiting.
