You may see the first electric vehicle charging station popping up in the Algoma area soon. Algoma Utilities has a grant program that provides up to $5,000 for commercial businesses of Algoma Utilities to purchase and install electric vehicle chargers. Energy Services Manager Markie Bsherer says a few companies have expressed interest already.
She shares how the grant for the Level 2 or 3 charger can be obtained.
To be eligible for the funding, a business must submit a letter requesting assistance. The grant request deadline is October 28, and the purchase of the EV charger must be made by December. You can find more information on the EV Chargers grant on the City of Algoma or the Algoma Utilities website.
