Free Event: The Bi-State Electric Vehicle Connector September 27 at Hypertherm in Lebanon, NH

Lebanon, NH – The Granite State Clean Cities Coalition, in partnership with the Vermont Clean Cities Coalition, invites fleets, businesses and municipalities to attend the Bi-State Electric Vehicle Connector.

This FREE one-day event will be held on Friday, September 27, 2019 at Hypertherm, 71 Heater Road, Lebanon, NH 03766. Registration check-in & refreshments begin at 8:30 a.m. The agenda runs from 9:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Bi-State Electric Vehicle Connector features opening remarks from Peter O'Connor of Plug-In America. Panel presentations, electric equipment and technology exhibits, as well as a ride-and-drive event with on- and off-road, light-, medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles, complete the day – including a delicious lunch.

Private and public fleets are increasingly seeking ways to improve fuel and maintenance savings, reduce emissions and support their local economy. The Bi-State Electric Vehicle Connector will highlight the electrification of vehicles, equipment and technology as an option for fleet diversification.

The transportation sector consumed more than 70% of all petroleum in the United States in 2017. In New Hampshire, 100% of that petroleum comes from sources outside of our state. Over 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in NH come from the transportation sector.

Three reasons to attend this event:

1) Get Inspired! Connect directly with the people who are using these vehicles, equipment, and technology.
2) Experience! Sit behind the wheel of an electric vehicle, demo electric lawn equipment and charging stations – hop on the BYD 30' Battery Electric Bus!
3) Transform! Exhibits and presentations provide the latest insights on electrification. Learn how you can transform your fleet!

The event is free and requires pre-registration. To register, visit: www4.des.state.nh.us/granitestatecleancities
