The City of Brampton will be joining the many other communities across Canada receiving federal funds to install new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
The city will use the funds through Natural Resources Canada‘s (NRC) Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program to add an additional 12 charging stations by the end of 2021. That will bring the total number of stations in Brampton to 65.
“As a Member of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, I am thrilled that the City is receiving funding for 12 new electric vehicle charging stations in Brampton,” said Mayor Patrick Brown.
Like many communities across Canada, Brampton declared a climate emergency in 2019, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, reports InBrampton.
“Brampton is a Green City, and with more sustainable transportation choices available locally, we can continue to work towards our ambitious target of reducing our GHGs by 80 per cent by 2050, together,” said Brown.
The 12 new charging stations will be installed at the following locations:
- Cassie Campbell Recreation Centre (2)
- Loafers Lake Recreation Centre (2)
- Chinguacousy Wellness Centre (4)
- Riverstone Community Centre (4)
