City drivers getting a charge

Electric vehicle owners can now re-charge their cars in Campbell River at 11 new charging stations that officially opened in time for International Earth Day, April 22.

Stations are now up and running at six locations in Campbell River, including the Visitor Information Centre in Tyee Plaza, City Hall, Dogwood Operations Centre, North Island College, and Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre Gas Bar and the new Target.

The EV charging stations in Campbell River are part of a province-wide network of 570 stations installed as part of the Provincial Community Charging Infrastructure Fund (CCI). The CCI was established in 2012 to support the growing demand for electric vehicle charging infrastructure and compliment similar initiatives underway in Washington, Oregon, and California. The City of Campbell River received $24,000 from the CCI Fund toward its six stations and matching funding from the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Rebate Program from the Province of B.C. This enabled the City to complete the project entirely through external grant funding.
