New electric vehicle to recharge at bullfrogpowered® home of Halifax singer-songwriter Dave Carroll

HALIFAX, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - On August 19th, award-winning Halifax singer-songwriter Dave Carroll will demonstrate his commitment to the environment when the new i-MiEV electric vehicle from Mitsubishi Motors recharges at his home as part of the 2010 Clean Across Canada tour. Carroll is a bullfrogpowered homeowner, which means that the electricity used to recharge the electric car at his home will come from 100 per cent green, renewable sources. No gas pump or greenhouse gas emissions, and no coal, oil or nuclear power - only a cool, compact car charged by an exterior wall outlet. Throughout the tour, the new electric, zero tailpipe emissions i-MiEV will stop to recharge at, among other places, bullfrogpowered homes as it makes its way across the nation.

WHAT: New i-MiEV electric vehicle recharges at bullfrogpowered home of Halifax singer-
songwriter Dave Carroll.
