Event Description


Come join us at the new Big Y World Class Market on Monday, September 14, for an after work Electric Vehicle (EV) Tailgate Party!  


Pictures from 2014 NDEW Event at CCSU, New Britain, CT

Big Y has graciously let us use their parking lot with their new dual use EV Charging station.  And they are also hosting the event with hot dogs, water, chips and more for the tailgate party!

Have an Electric Vehicle (or Plug-in)?  Bring your EV/Plug-In to the event to show it off and answer questions.  The charging station will be available to recharge while you're there!

Want to learn more about owning an EV/Plug-In?  Come visit and ask real owners about their experiences.  

In all cases, we encourage you to register to attend to help us better plan the event (and have the right number of hot dogs on hand for you!). 

Directions to Big Y Old Saybrook; On Interstate 95, take exit 66 and turn South onto Route 166.  Continue to first traffic light and turn left into the new Big Y shopping center.  Follow white NDEW lawn signs to our event!  Reserved parking for EV/Plug-in EV owners along the 'cobble stone' parking area.  Look for our green and white NDEW sign!

NEEAA is involved with eight other sites across Connecticut.  The full list can be reviewed here and includes hyperlinks to their NDEW sites.
