Had a beautiful, partly sunny comfortable day at Central Connecticut State University parking lot next to their charging stations. Many Teslas, Leafs, Volts, and other EV/PHEVs were on display for students and other visitors to see and ask questions. Some owners provided ride & drives to share the EV experience.
