Heather Burns-DeMelo is an environmental activist, journalist and the editor of CT Green Scene where she works to encourage people to integrate practical, sustainable living at home and work. One day she conjured up the idea that a Tesla Roadster would be fun to have at a special event CT Green Scene was hosting at Windermere on the Lake on November 20, 2008.

The $100,000 dollar sports car is 100 percent electric and it accelerates from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds. Long story short, she wanted one at the event but didn’t have any contacts at Tesla so she turned to social media networks and started networking; she wasn’t able to get a Roadster for the event. After using her contacts and contact’s contacts, she got TWO!
