Canada: Eight new e-vehicle charging stations for Maple Ridge

Of the 454 new charging locations to be built in B.C. as part of the $2.7 million community charging infrastructure fund, 10 will be in Maple Ridge.

“One of the cornerstones of the Maple Ridge community vision is carbon neutrality and the use of leading edge environmental technologies,” said Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin.

Charging stations have already been built as part of the upgrades to Maple Ridge Fire Hall No. 1 and the new Maple Ridge Community Animal Shelter, built in partnership with the B.C. SPCA.

Six of the eight new stations will be built and managed by the district, while Fraser Health will manage the other two at Ridge Meadows Hospital.

“Maple Ridge has been a leader in alternate fuel technology with 28 hybrid vehicles in our fleet in addition to the electric truck. It’s good for the environment, and with soaring fuel costs, it’s been a solid business decision to control costs,” Daykin said.
