This is our SIXTH consecutive EVent at the CCSU campus and it was Connecticut's first site in 2012! Working with Prof Button of CCSU, we reserved parking spots near the two level 2 chargers behind the student center. The afternoon of the event, we set up the signs, information table, tent, and then EVs/ PHEVs started arriving! Timing was perfect as some students were finishing classes while others were heading off to class. Lots of inquisitive minds asking good questions about what it's like to own a plug-in.

This is a view from the road to the campus where we had the tent set up and plug-ins at the charger stations and along the left row of parking spaces. Great location for our NDEW event!
All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events.
