Canada: WV looks to install car charging stations

ELECTRIC vehicles may soon have a place to power up in West Vancouver after council voted to apply for provincial funding to install charging stations at two of the municipality’s community centres.

Councillors voted to support the plan at a meeting June 25. If Victoria approves the funding, charging stations will appear in parking lots at the West Vancouver and Gleneagles community centres before the end of March next year. The province would contribute up to $4,000 for each facility, covering a maximum of 75 per cent of the cost.

The proposal is part of a wider effort by the district to reduce greenhouse gasses substantially by 2020. It also meshes with its long-term transportation goals, according to a staff report presented at the meeting.

Supporting the charging stations means building the infrastructure of the future, said Coun. Trish Panz.
