Over 10 different models including BMW i3, BMW i8, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, Mercedes B Class, VW e-Golf, Ford C-Max, Toyota Prius. The Town of Fairfield's Nissan Leaf was on display, sporting its new town seals on the doors. Zane's was present with electric bikes (a huge hit for test drives). Three food vendors were present including BuzzTruck (organic coffee roasted in Trumbull by Shearwater, who delivers in a Leaf), Snowie (every kid had one), and BGood (great veggie burgers). All Green It solar, Sierra Club, and CETF also had tables. A list of EV models at the CETF table went like hotcakes, as did the free sunglasses and USB fans provided by NDEW. Recevied bi-partisan support from political attendees: Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau (D), CT State Senator Tony Hwang (R), CT State Representative Laura Devlin (R), CT State Representative Brenda Kupchick (R), Fairfield RTM Member Dru Georgeodis (D), and Fairfield Selectperson Laurie McArdle (R).
