Burlington has unveiled the first electric charging station on municipal property Wednesday, which makes it easier for motorists anxious environmental recharge while in the city center.

"I think this as another step further in an impact with regard to climate change," Mayor Rick Goldring said at the inauguration.

The electric vehicle (EV) charging station is located on the first level of the garage at 414 Locust Street, adjacent to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre.

Industry leader ChargePoint Inc., based in California, produced the fourth generation model $ 10,000 which will be free to anyone paying to park in the garage.

According to data collected by the city, there are about 80 homes with the electric cars. However, Canadians across the country own 350,000 vehicles.
