USA: Live Green Connecticut! focuses on technology

Over the course of Saturday and Sunday, area companies and organizations focused on sustaining “green” living will showcase their wares at the third annual Live Green Connecticut! festival at Taylor Farm Park in Norwalk.

The event, organized by the nonprofit Live Green Connecticut!, will feature companies from around the state — 125 exhibitors in total presenting their green technologies and demoncrating their commitment to sustainability.

Live Green Connecticut! will also present an array of electric car models, including the Ford Focus Electric, C-MAX Hybrid and the Tesla Model S, available for test drive at the festival.

Ken Edwards, a Greenwich real estate broker, will showcase his own Tesla Roadster, a vehicle he purchased in 2009 fueled entirely by the electricity generated from the solar panels on the roof of his home.

“It has zero carbon footprint,” Edwards said of the car. “People are just excited and amazed at the performance, the styling, and the way it charges (using solar energy).”

Scot Weicker, co-founder of Live Green, said the festival is also about making the idea of green technology fun for the community. The event also offers a range of child-friendly activities and is expected to draw more than 1,000 spectators each day, Weicker said.
