Electric vehicle (EV) drivers in Metro Vancouver will soon have more options to charge their vehicles with the addition of 34 new EV chargers.
The project will be funded by $119,000 investment by Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program.
Also contributing to the new EV chargers is Vancouver developer Bosa Properties, adding another $156,000 for a total project cost of $275,000.
“Bosa Properties is pleased to be working with NRCan to invest in green energy infrastructure and deliver a project that will bring EV charging stations to neighbourhoods across Metro Vancouver. The addition of these chargers will help cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions, increase convenience for those driving electric cars and contribute positively to the neighbourhoods where we are building homes. We believe electric cars are an important solution in reducing greenhouse gases, and these charging stations are a crucial component in making that happen,” said John Martin VP Commercial at Bosa Properties
The locations of the level 2 EV chargers was not announced, with a press release only saying they would be installed in six cities in Metro Vancouver.
Tesla drivers in North Vancouver will also soon be getting their own Supercharger. A new 8 stall V3 Supercharger is currently under construction behind the London Drugs at 2042 Lonsdale Avenue.
