Event Report

Central Connecticut State Univesity (Host Site) Chief Administration Officer, Dr. Richard Bachoo, provided the opening remarks and announced that CCSU would be the recipient of a new Nissan Level 3 Charger for the campus. This will be the first CHAdeMO Quick DC Charging station in Connecticut (possibly in New England)! (We have pictures of Dr. Bachoo standing next to a Tesla Model S and, later, speaking).

Connecticut Governor Malloy released a public statement/proclamation announcing Sept 29th in Connecticut as National Plug In Day!
