EV Charger Expansion

The Township is continuing to expand its network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for both the community and fleet vehicles, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower air pollution. The Township currently operates 10 public level 2 charging stations across the municipality, and is accelerating charging capacity at Township facilities.

Operations Centre Expansion

A new, dedicated BC Hydro service was added to the municipal Operations Centre in Murrayville and a number of new chargers were installed:

  • 8 new chargers for Township fleet vehicles,
  • 4 new chargers for Township staff, and
  • 1 new public DC fast charger, the first of its kind in the neighbourhood

The new electrical service also ensures that the Operations Centre is “future-proofed” with enough capacity to power up to 60 level 2 chargers and 2 DC fast chargers as EV adoption grows.

Civic Facility Expansion

The Civic Facility has also undergone improvements to bring power to more electric vehicles. As of January 2022, the Facility now has 20 EV chargers, including: 

  • 6 new fleet chargers
  • 6 new staff chargers

The project included electrical capacity improvements to allow for an additional 18 chargers in the future as charging needs increase.

Both of these projects were made possible through support from the Government of Canada and the Province of BC.
