Event Report

Had a beautiful, partly sunny comfortable day at Central Connecticut State University parking lot next to their charging stations. Many Teslas, Leafs, Volts, and other EV/PHEVs were on display for students and other visitors to see and ask questions. Some owners provided ride & drives to share the EV experience.

Event Description


Come join us at the CCSU charging stations (parking lot behind Student Center) on Sunday, September 11, for our fourth gathering and reunion!

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.
