Electric vehicle owners can travel further this summer thanks to the opening of the first fast-charging station in the province at BC Hydro’s Powertech facility in Surrey.

“This new charging station gives electric vehicle drivers even more freedom and flexibility to move throughout Surrey and the Metro Vancouver region,” said Mayor Dianne Watts. “It’s important that efforts are made to support the growing demand for alternative fuel vehicles and this is a welcome addition to our existing electrical charging stations.”

The new charging station, which can charge an electric vehicle in 30 minutes, is located in Powertech’s Tech Park. The facility, which is close to the U.S. border and major highways, also includes four “level two” charging stations that can charge an electric vehicle in four hours.

“As more of these fast-charging stations open throughout B.C., electric vehicle drivers will have the confidence to travel between communities without worrying about lengthy wait times to charge their cars,” said Charles Reid, president and CEO of BC Hydro. “We all have more electronics and are finding new ways to use electricity. BC Hydro is committed to providing our customers with renewable power solutions to meeting their growing energy needs.”
