Summerside, P.E.I., has struck a deal to install 40 electric car charging stations throughout the city.
The city has partnered with Sun Country Highway to install 10 charging stations on municipal property and will work with local businesses to install an additional 30 stations.
In exchange for the installations, Summerside will give Sun Country approximately 30 million kilowatt hours of green energy credits produced by the city's wind farm each year.
Mayor Basil Stewart says he hopes the project encourages more residents to use electric vehicles.
Stewart says it positions the city for sustainable economic, social and environmental growth.
