Fast-Chargers get the green light in the Lower Mainland

It’s the perfect match of green thinking and a quick charge:  the BC Provincial Government announced Thursday that it will spend $1.3 million to set up fast-charging stations in 12 communities.

These new fast-charge stations will drop an eight-hour charge down to 30 minutes or less.  Available in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Surrey, Whistler, Hope, Merritt, Nanaimo and Saanich, Environment Minister Terry Lake hopes it will increase the attractiveness of the electric car to the consumer.

And with the people over at Tesla making electric cars look so sexy, we look forward to seeing more electric cars on the road!
