WESTPORT - Community leaders in Westport threw the switch this morning to power up the town's first two solar powered vehicle charging stations.

Both stations are at the office building at 495 Post Road East.

A solar array on the roof of the building is used to power the charging station, completely eliminating the need for coal or natural gas power.

A Chevy Volt electric car was also brought to the opening to be the first vehicle to receive a completely green charge.
