The City of Vancouver plans to partner with Metro Vancouver on an electric car charging station network, which could add up to 150 new charging stations across the Lower Mainland by March 2013.

“The City is partnering with Metro to ensure that the ‘on the go’ public locations are part of the planned regional network,” a city spokesperson wrote in an email to The Vancouver Observer.

The City will provide some of the host sites as part of their own pilot project announced in February, which proposes at least 67 charging stations by the end of 2013.

The City’s charging stations are funded through Charge and Go Vancouver, a field trial co-funded by the City, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, the province, and BC Hydro. Metro Vancouver’s charging stations project will be funded in part through the Provincial Community Charging Infrastructure Fund.
