Mayor Bonnie Crombie along with Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca appeared at Mississauga-based cleantech company Koben Systems Inc. to announce a $20 million provincial investment to help create a network of public charging stations for electric vehicles across Ontario. A portion of this investment will be dedicated to Mississauga to increase the number of electric vehicle charging stations available locally. Currently Mississauga is home to 163 electric vehicle charging stations. This investment in local cleantech assets and resources further supports Mississauga’s innovative and growing cleantech cluster.
