July 26, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

July 26, 2022 – Ottawa is supporting the Community Energy Association’s effort to install up to up to 90 EV chargers across British Columbia’s Kootenay region with $1 million.

“CEA is receiving funding and working collaboratively with the Regional Districts of Kootenay Columbia, Central Kootenay and East Kootenay to allow more places and spaces in the region to support the transition to electric vehicles,” said Megan Lohmann, director, Strategic Initiatives.

The funding comes from Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

The Community Energy Association will select recipients “through a transparent process, based on demand”, says NRCan.

The chargers will be installed in public places, multi-unit residential buildings, on streets, at workplaces or at facilities for servicing light-duty vehicle fleets by October 2023.
