Electric Vehicle Fair in Brattleboro

Posted | 0 comments

October 16, 2014   Electric Vehicle Fair Showcases Benefits of EVs   Are you thinking about buying or leasing an electric car or bicycle, or interested in learning about the benefits of EV ownership? Come to the Electric Vehicle Demonstration & Forum on Saturday, October 25th from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm at the Marlboro College Graduate School, 28 Vernon Street in downtown Brattleboro. A wide range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, along with electric-assisted bikes, cargo bikes and electric scooters will be on display and available for test rides in the parking lot from 3:00 – 4:30 pm. Electric vehicle owners and local dealers will be on hand to answer questions.   From 4:30 – 5:30 pm, Taborri Bruhl and Dave Cohen will offer presentations on electric vehicles in Room 2 East, and exhibits will be available for viewing. The presentations will be followed by a tour of the new electric vehicle charging station in the Brattleboro TransportationCenter, 77 Flat Street.   Over half of all Vermont communities have plug-in electric vehicles registered. Owners spend the equivalent of $1 per gallon of gas to charge their vehicles, while saving $1,200 or more on annual maintenance costs. EV purchasers are eligible for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits. Electric vehicles accelerate faster than most equivalent gas-powered cars, and have increased traction for winter driving due to heavy batteries. EVs are quiet, produce zero tailpipe emissions, and can be powered with renewable energy. If all Vermont cars were electric, we would save over $800 million in gasoline costs every year.   The Electric Vehicle Demonstration & Forum is free and open to the public, sponsored by Brattleboro Climate Protection, the Brattleboro Energy Committee, Marlboro College GraduateSchool, Brattleboro Food Co-op, and Soveren Solar. Light refreshments will be served.   For more information, contact:   Paul Cameron Brattleboro Climate Protection 230 Main Street, Suite 202 Brattleboro, VT  05301 (802) 251-8135...
