Negative Carbon Road Trip Visited the Space Coast

20160311_172427 20160311_172404 20160311_172912We had a special guest visit FIT on Friday March 11, 2016.  With some last minute,  and quick twitter direct messaging we were able to get Brian Kent to add Melbourne to his list of charging stops while driving through all 48 states in a 100% electric Nissan Leaf.  In case you haven’t heard of it, the Negative Carbon Road Trip (Indiegogo, Facebook, Twitter) is a project that Brian embarked on to show the world that it is already possible to drive all over the USA in an electric car.  And as a bonus he is planting trees in every state he visits to offset the carbon he generates from the electricity used for driving.  I was sad that I didn’t have any stickers for our club he could add to the hundreds already plastered all over his car.  We are very thankful to have met him and wish that we could have had more time to plan a big event and even invite the newspapers and TV cameras.  Instead we’ll post all the pictures we took here and link to the project so everyone reading this can go follow the rest of the trip.  Thanks again to Brian for stopping by and thanks for doing such a great project!

March Monthly Meetup

Everyone had a great time at our Monthly Meetup for March.  We got to plug in at the free chargers at the Marriott Courtyard in Cocoa Beach while we ate at the bistro inside.  We had several new members to introduce to the group and talk about all of the upcoming events we are planning.  Keep an eye on our upcoming events page to see things we’re planning so you can come out and see several EV makes and models up close all in one place and get answers to all your questions from us every day drivers first hand.  Our current membership now looks like this:
