Living Green Expo
 
By Marty Elstrom 
 

The Minnesota Electric Auto Association (MNEAA) had a substantial presence at the Living Green Expo held May 2 and 3, 2009 at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. Over 250 Minnesota exhibitors of environmentally friendly products, services, activities, and information participated in the 2009 free annual event.  

The outdoor exhibit for the MNEAA featured Mike Shoop's Volt Vette conversion and inside there were conversions by Dave Peichel with his Geo Metro, Chris Simon and his Ford Focus, and Roger Klisch with his MG conversion.   

A steady stream of interested onlookers talked with members, got business cards noting the club's website, and were encouraged to attend future club meetings. Many club members assisting at the MNEAA area sported their new green club t-shirts with the "Land of 10,000 Outlets" emblazoned on the back. 

Additionally, and in separate exhibits, member Jim Black was on hand displaying his electrically assisted bicycles, member Carl Gulbrandson exhibited Zap 3-wheeled neighborhood electric vehicles and motorcycles and the new Current electric car which is being produced in Colorado. Segway stand-up 2-wheeled electric vehicles featured escorted trial rides in the transportation area. A new electric vehicle for the handicapped allowed a wheel chair to be maneuvered right up to the steering wheel from a hatch back type entrance. 

Club members assisted with set up and tear down of exhibits in lieu of payment for exhibit space. Brad Lindberg, Special Events coordinator for the club arranged for workers.
