This month we met at REI in Dallas.  It was really nice to have our meeting inside.  It was a little warm out and the air condition was nice and had plenty of seating.  We had 10 people at this months meeting.  We discuss the upcoming events over the net two months (Cisco Earth Day, Dallas Green Festival, Dallas Fair, Renewable Energy Roundup in Fredricksburg).  We have people and EVs for just about every show.

We had a new EV owner at this months meeting.  He purchased an EV Pickup Truck.  He hasn’t driven it very much just yet, but it sounded like he was really enjoying it.  Hopefully he will be able to drive it to one of our upcoming meetings or events.  It is always fun to look at a new EV!

Paul is building a bill board to display at events and functions.  So if you have an EV, please send Paul a few pictures of it along with some information about your EV.  You can send those emails to nteaa.org@gmail.com, and he will get those pictures together for a billboard.

We got a good update from Doug Canfield on EV Charging Stations.  He discussed some of the challenges of installing EV Charging Stations.   It was interesting to hear about some of the challenges that they are facing.  Its interesting that they have charging stations in stock ready to go and other places are trying to invent a charging station or get companies that don’t have them to install them.  Anyways, it was good to hear some of the information Doug told us about.    We just need to get Doug to finish his EV!

All in all, it was a good informative meeting.  We learned a lot and got a lot scheduled for the upcoming meetings.  We hope to see more people and EVs in the upcoming meetings.
