Canadian Tire is embracing the future – by adding charging stations for electric vehicles at 25 of the company’s gas locations in Ontario.
Addenergie Technologies says the stations will start rolling out early next year – joining the 2,500 locations along its Canadian charging network.
The federal government will be contributing nearly half – of a $1.8 million investment in the project – through a loan.
it’s part of Ottawa’s commitment to provide $62.5 million for fast-charging stations for electric vehicles – as well as natural gas and hydrogen refuelling stations – along key transportation corridors, like Highway 401.
