Josh Denton, City Councilor and event Co Captain and Jessica Wilcox, Granite State Clean Cities Coordinator plugging in the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services EV to a EV Launchpad DC fast charging station in Historic downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Josh, gave a speech about how as part of the city's sustainability master plan that he would like to install more fast charging stations in the downtown to help attract more tourists driving EVs. Jessica spoke about how Portsmouth businesses were very successful in supporting the "Destination Electric", a campaign from Drive Change, Drive Electric to promote businesses located close to charging stations. James Penfold from EV Launchpad, a locally based charging station company, added that EV drivers typically seek out destinations with charging that they may have otherwise passed over and they dwell more time while topping off their vehicles that is a win for the drivers and local businesses!
