Want to read an inspiring Ontario case study of how a small NGO swiftly transformed electric vehicle charging in a thinly populated rural and tourist area? Warmest congratulations to the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association for making electric vehicle charging widely available from Tobermory to Lion’s Head in just a few months. From a standing start this winter, they have now placed 33 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers at independent inns, motels and campsites across the northern half of the Bruce Peninsula, including Hope Bay, Pike Bay, Ferndale, Lion’s Head, Stokes Bay, Miller Lake, Cape Chin, and Tobermory. So yes, you can now drive your electric vehicle all the way to Tobermory, supporting family businesses along the way.
And yet more congratulations to philanthropist Mike Brigham whose foundation made the installation subsidies possible. Mike Brigham’s Foundation is also funding Ontario’s $1000 used electric vehicle grant, since our provincial government refuses to do it, and rescued Plug-n-Drive when the Ford government cancelled its funding. Bottom line: Mike is personally doing more to foster electric vehicles in Ontario than our entire provincial government. We are lucky to have him.
