BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) —Local utility companies are hoping to spark a movement in Massachusetts by investing heavily in electric vehicles.
Eversource and National Grid are waiting for approval for their multi-million dollar plans to build up Massachusetts' Electric backbone.
The utility companies are looking to invest in electric vehicle infrastructure, as well as set commercial charging rates under their proposals submitted to the Department pf Public Utilities.
Governor Charlie Baker signed a law earlier this year, to expand the electric vehicle movement and cut carbon pollution.
A public hearing is set for September with electric car makers, including Tesla. The company asked to be a part of the proceedings.
