"..electric and hydrogen vehicles to represent 5 percent of new car sales by 2020."

A target for plug-in electric and hydrogen vehicles to represent 5 percent of new car sales by 2020. (About 14,000 out of roughly 285,000.) Continuation of rebates for electric vehicle purchases (up to $14,000) and home charging stations (up to $1,000) through 2020. Exempting plug-ins from the 8 percent provincial sales tax, within two years. The aforementioned free nighttime charging initiative. Presumably, meters will be placed on home chargers' circuits, with the government rebating those costs to utilities. Encouraging the build-out of high-speed chargers at highway rest stops. Requiring all newly-built commercial office buildings and workplaces to provide charging infrastructure. Requiring all newly-built Ontario homes and townhomes with garages to have a 50 amp, 240 volt (12 kW) receptacle.
