Regional district exploring electric vehicle charging stations

The Regional District of Fraser Fort George will be part of a funding application to the CleanBC Fund to secure funding for electric vehicle charging stations along the Highway 5, 16 and 97 corridors.

The Community Energy Association is applying on behalf of six regional districts, including the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George for funding that could cover up to 73 per cent of the eligible costs to purchase, install, operate, maintain and the network cost for five years for 120 electric vehicle Level 2 chargers.

As part of the application requirement, the regional district will also provide up to $25,000 for electric vehicle charging stations to be located on select regional district properties, pending the outcome of the grant application.
