NTEAA has a lot of fun at the Dallas Green Festival.  We had 4 vehicles there at the show; Brecher’s Fiero and Sparrow, Neil’s VW Golf and the gentelman who drives the NiMh Ford Ranger.  Channel 4 did an interview with Neil in front of the Sparrow.  Although they did not use the clip during the news.  There was just a quick flash of the sparrow during the news.

At one point a guy named David drove up on his electric bike he parked the bike and visit with us. His bike has a plywood frame, downhill bike components, an etek motor, a 48V pack and an Alltrax controller.  This was a pretty neat looking EV and had some great performance.

We also ran into another gentleman who has a GPS Motorcycle (which is an EV motorcycle).   He will be coming to some of our future events, he hopes to get a lot of questions answered.  He is currently experiencing problems with his motorcycle.

But all in all, we talked to a lot of interesting people and hopefully we will have more people coming to our monthly meetings.

Here is an email we got from the Green Festival :

Dear Green Festival 2009 Exhibitors,

Thank you so much for making this year’s Green Festival such a success!  We could not have been more pleased with the result from the exhibitors to the weather to the guest turn-out.

Over 1000 people attended the event this year at the Bath House and walked, biked, or drove away with more knowledge about living a green lifestyle than they came with.

This event would not be possible without each of your support and unique expertise.  The goal of the City of Dallas Office of Environmental Quality is to build a greener Dallas .  The Green Festival brought together over 50 green exhibitors in non-profit, government, higher education, and business as well as interested Dallas residents with the unified goal of building a greener Dallas and a cleaner, healthier world.

We hope you found the event productive towards your own green goals and I look forward to receiving your feedback survey (see attachment).  We want to make this annual event better each time.

Again, thank you.  You have made a difference.

Best wishes and stay green,

Hannah Kolni
