Fall River Electric's '22 Energy Expo returned to a fully in-person event, which was held on Saturday, June 11, 2022 in Driggs ID at Teton High School. The annual meeting of members, referred to as the Business Meeting, was held the same morning and was also streamed online to members who could not participate in-person. You can view a recording of the Business Meeting below.
The election of three board members out of six candidates was completed along with dozens of free prizes given away. Every member that attended received a FREE portable solar power bank and an energy conservation kit which included a surge protector and three LED bulbs. Members could also visit over 20 vendor booths, attend a high-voltage electric safety demonstration, and member test drives of Fall River's Tesla electric vehicle. Kids enjoyed bounce houses, bucket truck rides, a climbing wall, and a number of STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) activities along with popcorn & treats.
