$80M fund for Ontario electric car charging stations
Premier Dalton McGuinty announced an $80 million fund to help spur the development and investment in electric car charging stations.
The announcement was made in Markham, Ont., where the Liberal leader charged an electric car at the PowerStream electrical utility operations centre.
Ontario, together with Infrastructure Ontario, is accepting requests for proposals to build, test and expand the availability of recharging facilities. The province will provide seed money to the winning projects.
