Sierra Club, energy committee to host documentary at church

KENNEBUNK – “The Revenge of the Electric Car,” a documentary film, will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28 at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Kennebunk.

Nissan LEAF owner Marc Lausier will speak immediately following the film. Lausier’s 2012 LEAF (aka, Leading Environmental Affordable Family car) will be on display in the church dooryard t 6 p.m.

Sponsored by the Sierra Club and Kennebunk Energy Efficiency Committee, the event is free. Dessert and coffee will be served at 6:30 p.m.

Also on hand at the event will be Sharon A. Staz, general manager of Kennebunk Light and Power District, who has recently received a grant to install a dual electric car charger in Kennebunk. According to Staz, the district is very pleased that its membership in the American Public Power Associations’ DEED program offered the opportunity for this matching grant.

“As stated in the application, the district believes Kennebunk is an excellent location for installing a charging station,” Staz said. “With so many out-of-state tourists, the average mileage for an electric car is perfect: Drive up from Boston, spend the day or an overnight and charge your car for free.”

The film is directed by Chris Paine, who also directed “Who Killed the Electric Car?”

Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM and Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars.
