Event ReportThis was a kickoff event for a new collaboration between Belmont Light (Belmont Municipal Light Department), the Belmont Energy Committee, and Sustainable Belmont, under the umbrella of "Belmont Goes Electric!" The event was designed as a Home, Garden, & Garage Electrification Event and featured an EV Ride & Drive, demonstrations of battery electric lawn equipment, and information on home heat pumps/mini-splits, rooftop solar, and other sustainable initiatives.
We were lucky to have our town's DPW Water Division let us show off its new Ford Mustang Mach-E, and we had a surprise demonstration from a Rivian pickup that was extremely popular.
This group is planning an event around Earth Day or late spring to keep the momentum going.
