The City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia has just opened four new electric vehicle (EV) chargers at its regional airport.
The ChargePoint EV chargers were installed thanks to a $200,000 investment from the Government of Canada through Natural Resources Canada’s Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative.
Both the Government of B.C. through its CleanBC Go Electric Program, and the Nanaimo Airport each contributed $100,000 to the project, for a total project cost of $400,000.
Already available for use, two 50kW DC fast chargers were installed in the main airport parking lot. Another two 50kW DC fast chargers were also installed in the airport’s north parking lot.
Each charger has both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. There is no cost to use the EV chargers currently, and parking is also free in both lots.
