Better Place and the Smart Grid in Ontario

Yesterday, Better Place announced a brand new electric vehicle charging project to take place in the province of Ontario to make it easier for electric car drivers to charge their vehicles on a smart grid network, and prepare to spread the electric vehicle smart grid to the rest of the province.

 

Electric cars spreading in Ontario, Canada

As 2011 is shaping up to be the year of the electric car, it’s fitting for Better Place to spread to Canada’s most populated province. Markets like Toronto are ripe for electric car adoption as soon as they are available, and the Better Place smart grid network will only speed up adoption. With the partnership between Better Place and the Ontario government, Canadian residents will learn the facts and fictions about electric cars, and how the smart grid will revolutionize our personal transportation.
