Event Report

We held our 3rd annual 'tail gate' party at the Big Y World Class Supermarket in Old Saybrook on a week night. Big Y night manager Dave manned the grill and offered hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, and cold drinks while visitors stopped by after shopping to learn more about plug in vehicles. We had a wide range of EVs; BMW I3, Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus EV, and more!

We took over the farthest South parking section for the Plug-ins. Here you can see the EVs, our display table, and the store in the background. Big Y has been very sportive of EVs. They installed a two-station charger right in front of this new store and we're told that the president of this New England grocery chain drives Model S!
