A Guest on The View?

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

Just call me Hollywood.

Today, I had the opportunity to speak on the “early adopters” discussion panel at the The Workplace Charging Workshop held at the NextEnergy Conference Center in Detroit.   The goal of the workshop was to educate business leaders on how to incorporate plug-in electric vehicle charging stations at their facilities.

It felt like I was a guest on The View.

As part of the session, the official Michigan sign (that Auburn Hills created) for designating and identifying charging stations was highlighted.

It was a unique experience and excellent opportunity for us to tell the Auburn Hills Story.
