There are 10 electric-charging stations in town, with 10 more planned.
Scott Thompson, the chairman of the Fairfield Clean Energy Task Force, said, “With the highest density of charging stations in Connecticut, the Fairfield community is helping to promote our region’s opportunities for cleaner transportation. It’s the perfect time for an event that brings prime-time electric vehicle technology to a wider audience.”
The showcase has been organized by the Fairfield Clean Energy Task Force, and the Fairfield Bike, Walk, Run and Fairfield Earth Day committees.
“I want to thank our town committees for organizing this first-ever electric vehicle event to educate the public on more ways to benefit the environment and to be more energy efficient,” First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a press release. “Our town is proud to be an active participant in supporting and utilizing numerous clean energy and green initiatives.”
