Weather was great at our Stop & Shop grocery store gathering this Saturday afternoon. The store graciously provided apple cider and apple / pumpkin donut holes to celebrate the season's changing to fall. We had several plug-ins on display including a Ford Focus Electric, two Leafs, a new Model S, Ford C-Max Energi and a E-Golf. Special mention to Lindsey and his Gen 1 Prius, the first one sold in Connecticut! Several shoppers stopped by to learn about plug-ins and State Representative Mary Mushinsky joined us to discuss EVs/ PHEVs.

Andy's Ford Focus Electric is in the forefront and he is talking with State Rep Mary Mashinsky. Dave's Leaf, Ron's Tesla Model S, and Scott's EVs are next in the line up.
Stop & Shop has graciously let us use their parking lot near their two new EV Charging stations. And they are also hosting the event with afternoon refreshments 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 count for food on hand for you!).
