Turns out that you can get more than money or a mortgage at one of Burlington’s Bank of Nova Scotia branches.

Scotia - Bella Alim - electric charge stationBella Alim, the branch manager at Lakeside Shopping Village, will handle your mortgage and she will direct you to the electric car charging machine that looks a little like a gas pump standing outside the branch on Lakeshore Road East.

The Electric Vehicle Charging Station is one of 30 the bank has set up across Canada.

The banks public relations spin on this is that they “believe every customer has the right to become better off. For those making an effort to create a healthier environment by driving electric vehicles, we are happy to support them by offering charging stations at Scotiabank locations,” said Terri Williams, Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility at Scotiabank.

The electric charging isn’t free – but it is convenient. With the federal government wanting to see a massive increase in electric cars – even though the automotive dealers aren’t apparently all that keen on actually offering that type of vehicle for sale, the move to electric us taking place – and the Bank of Nova Scotia has decided to hitch their wagon to that form of transportation.

Good on them!
