The town hosts an Electric Vehicle Showcase on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the auxiliary commuter lot at 140 Mill Plain Road, across from the town’s Postol Recreation Center.

The showcase, which will feature local electric car owners and dealerships, coincides with National Drive Electric Week. Zane’s Cycles will have electric bikes at the showcase.

The event is free.

Residents will learn about the availability and benefits of driving electric vehicles, such as lower carbon emissions, fuel savings, reduced maintenance and federal and state incentives.

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.”
