Thanks for Rocking Our Block!
Our first-ever Energy Block Party took place April 22, and – thanks to all attendees and participants – the event proved aptly named. To all customer-owners who stopped by, we appreciate you. To those who brought along youngsters, you really added special spark to the event! It was a joy to see kids touching trucks, meeting our mascot, or just enjoying the day.
The Block Party would not have been possible without our community partners, EV enthusiasts and the maestros who served magic from their food trucks. Thank you so much for your support. We hope to see you all next year!
