Member of Parliament for NorthumberlandPeterborough South, Kim Rudd, on behalf of Canadas Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, announced a $2-million investment in Sky Solar Canada Ltd., for a total of twelve solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations at five sites across Ontario.
Frank Ruffolo, VP of Operations for Sky Solar Canada explains why the investment is so important.
Kim Rudd explained the importance of the investment towards electric vehicles.
Many of the charging stations are bi-directional, which means they will also be able to deliver energy from the battery to the electricity grid. The demonstration project will help identify barriers and the economic benefits of bi-directional charging.
