Canada: Public car-charging stations now open across Nanaimo

/Electric car owners are now able to “fuel up” for free in Nanaimo.

City staff members opened the first of four new public charging stations at Beban Park on Tuesday.

The stations, which will also be available at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre and Port Parkade, are free to use as part of the city’s aim to support green technology and reduce green house gases.

The technology will cost the city close to $20,000 once installation is complete and approxi-mately $300 annually in electrical costs.

In the future, the city can upgrade the machines to charge vehicle owners or place a premium of the parking space to collect revenue.
