Fairfield Goes “Electric” -- Cars and Bikes on Display
Fairfield once again marked National Drive Electric Week recently with its own special showcase of electric cars and bicycles.
Hosted by the Fairfield Clean Energy Task Force (CETF) together with the Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition and the Southwestern Connecticut Clean Cities Coalition, the third annual Electric Vehicle (EV) Showcase was held on September 9.
The event will brought together local car dealers, electric car club members, many local EV owners and the public to view the newest EV models and learn about the current state of the technology.
National Drive Electric Week, September 9-17 (www.driveelectricweek.org), was a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.
Encourage residents back to top
First Selectman Mike Tetreau said, “Supporting vehicle owners who have decided to ‘go electric’ is a vital part of our Town’s commitment to making Fairfield a more environmentally sustainable community. We’re proving that commitment by offering the highest density of electric vehicle charging stations in southwestern Connecticut with more installations planned.”
He continued, “We want to encourage residents to take advantage of this fun opportunity to see many of the innovative EV models now available, talk to EV owners and dealers, and learn more about all of the compelling cost and environmental benefits of electric vehicles.”
“Electric cars are economical, good for the environment, fun to drive, and more affordable than ever,” said Scott Thompson, CETF chairman.
