I know there are several "crowd funding" options out there to raise quick money. The road block I see is getting the word out to all the Iowa City / Des Moines / Ames area EV owners. Maybe your web-site would be a good source? How many folks are you aware that know about these efforts?

We haven't found a way to get in touch with EV owners. The event we are holding this Sunday may flush out some. We'll see. We only have a list of about 10 EV owners so far. Pretty darn small! www.EVIowa.info
