From three employees in a trailer to their modern Milford facility amidst five acres of inventory, Contemporary Automotive has gone through quite a growth spurt over the past 30 years. With their 450-panel solar array on the roof and additional energy upgrades – including LED lighting, EV charging stations, and bioretention gardens outside – owners David and Audrey Hammer are saving six figures and bringing in business while achieving their goal of taking care of their customers, their employees, and the environment.

David will talk about their family-owned company’s path to sustainability and success, why they designed their dealership with environmental responsibility in mind, and how their customers feel about a solar-powered car dealership – hint, they feel pretty darn good.
