Big Y has graciously let us use their parking lot with their new dual use EV Charging station. And they are also hosting the event with hot dogs, water, soda, chips and more for the tailgate party!
Have an Electric Vehicle (or Plug-in)? Bring your EV/Plug-In to the event to show it off and answer questions. The charging station will be available to recharge while you're there!
Want to learn more about owning an EV/Plug-In? Come visit and ask real owners about their experiences.
In all cases, we encourage you to register to attend to help us better plan the event (and have the right number of hot dogs on hand for you!).
