The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George will be part of two new funding applications to seek additional funding for electric vehicle charging stations in northern B.C.
The regional district is a member of Charge North, a collaborative project led by the Community Energy Association made up of six regional districts interested in supporting the development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in northern B.C.
The project engages 43 local governments from south of Kamloops to Haida Gwaii in order to develop an electric vehicle (EV) charging station network of over 2,780 kms. An application was made earlier this year for CleanBC funds. Applications will be going forward to the Rural Dividend Fund and NDIT’s Strategic Initiatives Fund.
