We are electric vehicle enthusiasts evangelizing the rapid adoption of EVs.

Our mission is to be evangelists for EV adoption and to help the state meet the goals set forth in the Multi-state ZEV Action Plan.

We do this by interacting with people in EV showcases and ride and drive events. We advocate for and help draft EV-friendly legislation.

We participate in public events focused on sustainability. And, finally, we are a resource for anyone who is looking to buy an EV.

CT EV Roadmap Released

The CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has released its policy framework for accelerating EV adoption, which has been in development for some time. Link on the reverse.

We Could Have Clean Air Always

As reported in the LA Times, “If I could wave my magic wand and we all had electric cars tomorrow, I think this is what the air would look like,” said Ronald Cohen, a professor of atmospheric chemistry at UC Berkeley who has been studying the effects of the stay-at-home orders on air quality.

The Air Quality is Much Improved Locally

A blog post about the stay at home orders' impact on local air quality is here.

What electric vehicles are on the market?

It’s time to make the switch to an electric vehicle

Battery lives are longer, new models have arrived, prices have come down, federal and state incentives continue and more charging stations are being built. Buying an EV is the best way to immediately lower your carbon footprint.

The greatest societal benefits of driving an electric vehicle are no tailpipe emissions, which means no dangerous air pollution or greenhouse gas emissions.
