USA: In Fairfield, getting charged up for electric vehicles

Charged up about electric cars and clean energy? Then the downtown parking lot adjacent to Sherman Green was the place to be Friday.

The site was the setting for the first Electric Car Community Days program, offering visitors the opportunity to learn about five electric cars, electric car-charging units, gas-to-electric conversion systems and clean energy initiatives. It was a joint initiative of the town, state and the group, Connecticut’s Clean Cities, a division of the federal Department of Energy.

The program was scheduled to continue at the green Saturday. And to help whet people’s appetite for electric vehicles, discounts were served up by nearby restaurants during the event. Similar programs were offered Friday and Saturday in New Haven, Stamford, Berlin and Norwich.

The green, at Post and Reef roads, is also the site of an electric vehicle charging station, installed last year as a joint project by United Illuminating, the town and General Electric.
