Rt.Hon. Guenter A. Rieger, Using Electric Energy


The engineering masterminds at AMG have undertaken a mission of the most challenging nature. The goal: to create the next generation driving experience. The result: 552 kW (751 hp) --the most powerful AMG of all time and, correspondingly, the world's fastest electrically-powered series production vehicle.

“It’s been an exciting period of time since last fall,” said Graham Flint, the solar PV specialist with HEN.

Flint said Ontario’s Green Energy Act allowed for individuals to become energy generators. “(The act) opens up the electrical generation market to everyone.” Read more......
