Contact Info


On August 22, 2011, the town of Westport, CT officially unveiled its first electric vehicle (EV) charging station and became the first in the nation to offer drivers a pay-by-phone option. Westport is the first municipality to install a charging station as part of Connecticut Light & Power’s (CL&P) EV research project, the most comprehensive study of plug-in car recharging in New England. 
“We’ve worked hard to make Connecticut an early market for EVs,” said Jeff Butler, CL&P’s president and chief operating officer. “We’re excited to see towns like Westport take advantage of the opportunity to become a leader in clean technology.” 
“Westport has always been a leader in promoting green and protecting the environment,” said First Selectman Gordon Joseloff. “We are pleased to join CL&P in pioneering this latest effort to encourage Americans to make a lifestyle change to help preserve our planet.”
