The electric vehicle (EV) charging network in the Township of King will soon be expanding thanks to an investment from the Government of Canada.
Located in the York Region north of Toronto, the township is the recipient of $200,000 from Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program to install 20 new EV chargers.
The Township of King will also be contributing $336,000 to the project, for a total cost of $536,000.
“The funding from NRCan will help us continue to build on King Township’s green legacy. We know EVs are the future of personal transportation. That’s why we’ve started to put the infrastructure in place now that will give our residents convenient access to charging stations,” said Steve Pellegrini, Mayor, Township of King.
The press release did not state if these new EV chargers will be Level 2 or DC fast chargers. Based on the project cost compared to other similar projects it is likely that at least some of these will be DC fast chargers.
