The City of Ottawa is planning to install 24 new on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at a dozen sites across the city, and they want your input on where to place them.
Ottawa has a target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 100% by 2050, and have 90% of all new vehicles sales by 2030 be electric.
To help reach those goals, 12 pairs of on-street EV charging stations (2 chargers per station) will be installed by next year.
Another reason the city wants to install the chargers is to provide more options to residents who don’t have a place to charge their EVs at home.
A total of 13 locations have been pre-selected based on the following criteria:
- Available space and hydro access for installation and ongoing operations including winter maintenance needs
- Existing charging station locations
- Identified need
- Safety (won’t obstruct the sidewalk)
- Permanency (no planned work leading to a shutdown)
Residents have until October 15, 2020 to provide their input on the proposed locations by responding to a short survey.
