Free juice for electric cars at mall

People with electric cars can now get them juiced up for free while they shop at Stone Road Mall.
Guelph Hydro, in partnership with the mall, has installed an electric vehicle charging station in the mall parking lot as part of a research study into electric vehicle use.
The station will serve two parking spots and will offer one 240-volt and two 120-volt connections. It can be used by any electric vehicle, including  scooters, and charge time will vary depending on how much charge is required, a news release said.
Data collected from the station, including how long it takes to charge a vehicle and how often people are using it, will be analyzed as part of Guelph Hydro’s study, it said.
Guelph Hydro plans to install two more stations in the city – downtown and in the north end. Suggestions from the community on where to install them are requested by email to
