The City of Windsor will begin construction later this month on 11 new dual-port charging stations, creating another 22 charging spaces within the city. The stations will be built on municipally-owned lots and will be free for EV drivers while the city collects data to determine the future expansion of their charging infrastructure.

The chargers will be available for public use by March 2022 at the following locations:

Natural Resources Canada also announced this morning an investment of $99,900 to ERTH Corp to install 21 new EV chargers across Ontario. ERTH Corp also contributed $236,946 for a total project cost of $336,846.

All chargers are already installed and ready for public use. They were funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program. The chargers are in the following cities and town in Ontario:

  • Aylmer
