Just a few weeks ago a new investment was announced to build 22 new level 2 charging stations in the interior of British Columbia.

Peel, Ontario is the next lucky recipient of NRC funds as it was announced this morning it will contribute $207,000 towards the construction of 43 new EV fast chargers in the region.

The new charging stations were specifically referred to as “fast chargers” in the press release, suggesting these will be DC fast chargers that can fully charge most EVs in as little as 30 minutes. Previous press releases by NRC have mentioned level 2 chargers, so this does not seem like an oversight.

Funding for this project is from NRC’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP), which supports the federal government’s ambitious target that all new passenger cars sold in Canada by 2040 will be zero emission.

The Government of Canada has so far provided over $300 million to create and expand a coast-to-coast EV charging network. Other funding initiatives this year have included $100,000 to install 20 new EV chargers on Vancouver Island, and $220,000 for Oakville to construct 44 new chargers.
