The government of Canada has announced it plans to build 34 new electric vehicle chargers across Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, at six different sites.
The announcement from Natural Resources Canada says $119,000 CAD will be spent to install 34 Level 2 EV chargers.
Bosa Properties will add to the project to take the total cost to over $275,000 CAD ($217,894 USD), which the government says will “encourage the adoption of zero-emission vehicles by providing British Columbians with more options to charge and drive their vehicles where they live, work and play.”
“We are giving Canadians the greener options they want to get to where they need to go. This is how we get to net zero by 2050,” said Seamus O’Regan Jr., Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources.
“We believe electric cars are an important solution in reducing greenhouse gases, and these charging stations are a crucial component in making that happen,” said John Martin, VP Commercial at Bosa Properties.
The Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program is funding the program. Canada wants to have all new cars sold in Canada to be zero-emission by 2040.
