Title: Concord Air Monitoring Station Open House 
Description: NHDES invites the public to tour the Concord Air Monitoring Station on July 11, from 10 AM-12 PM. Staff will be available to talk about our statewide air-monitoring network, and to answer any questions about the local ambient air monitoring station. You will learn what we are monitoring for and why. You will learn about the environmental and cost benefits of using electric lawn and garden equipment compared to gasoline-powered lawn and garden equipment. For example, did you know one hour of use of a gasoline lawn mower is equal to driving 300 miles? Gas-powered lawn and garden equipment release harmful air pollutants that contribute to the formation of smog, whereas electric-powered equipment have no emissions. You will have the opportunity to test out our Kobalt 80 Volt Cordless Electric Lawn Mower, along with the Kobalt 80 Volt String Trimmer. Did you know that America's first cars were electric? That's right, in 1902, the Woods Motor Vehicle Company built the "Phaeton," an electric car with a range of 18 miles! Today, electric vehicles (EV) are advancing with power and efficiency - we will be showcasing an EV so that you can experience this exciting technology firsthand! We will also have EV literature and resources for you to take home. Don't miss out on this electrifying opportunity to learn more about the technology that moves people! The event is free and requires no registration.
