New charging stations coming for electric cars more public charging stations available, electric vehicle owners can plan longer trips with more confidence.”

Owners of electric cars and trucks will soon have some new sites to charge up while driving around Prescott-Russell. The provincial government will install seven charging stations for electric vehicles, in Prescott-Russell, as part of its partnership arrangement with both the private sector andmunicipalities, under the guidelines of the Ontario Green Investment Fund.

The resolution criticizes the provincial government promotion of solar and wind power project developments even when the operators are paid higher rates for the electricity produced than its actual value from other sources like hydro. – Gregg Chamberlain
