New Hampshire Celebrates National Plug-In Day on October 5th

Concord, NH - The Granite State Clean Cities Coalition is encouraging New Hampshire residents and visitors to celebrate National Plug-In Day, this Saturday, October 5, 2013. Coordinated by the Plug In America Organization, Plug-In Day is an unprecedented nationwide observance drawing attention to the environmental, economic and other benefits of plug-in electric vehicles (EV) through 75 simultaneous events exhibited in at least 35 major cities. New Hampshire's celebration of National Plug In Day will include an event on Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in front of the State House lawn in Concord. This event is the result of a partnership between Granite State Clean Cities, NH Sierra Club, NH Automobile Dealers Association and ConVerdant Vehicles.

The electric vehicle display runs concurrently with and is adjacent to the Concord Farmers' Market. Electric cars like Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, Tesla S and others will be on display from local dealerships and car enthusiasts, with charging stations, fliers, electric bicycles, Segways and more. Additional information will be on hand providing information on the environmental benefits of electric cars, charging stations and inverters. The event is open and free to the public.

In addition, earlier this week Governor Maggie Hassan issued a Proclamation designating Saturday, October 5, 2013 as "Plug In Day in New Hampshire". For more information about Plug-In Day, go to www.pluginamerica.org.
