Plug and Go: Charging Up at the Westport Station

By Dave Matlow

Westporter Barry Kresch, an owner of a “plug-in” hybrid Chevrolet Volt, is used to getting special attention with his car. And today he got plenty.

He and his electric and gasoline-powered vehicle made history of sorts at the Metro-North Westport train station in Saugatuck by becoming the first user of the new electric vehicle charging stations there –- stations powered by solar panels on the eastbound stationhouse roof.

On hand to greet him was Leo Cirino, head of the Westport Electric Car Club and one of the proponents of the project, which gives electric vehicle owners with railroad parking permits a preferred space at the station until 10 a.m. After that, the spaces are available to any permit holder.

Kresch, a marketing and analytics consultant who was boarding the 10:32 a.m. train for Grand Central, said he had driven the vehicle about 3,000 miles since he acquired it in October.
