To solve the lack of charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) in Ontario, Westario Power and Bruce Power Net Zero (BPNZ) have created a program to build more EV charging stations.
Indeed, there are currently only 45 accessible stations in Ontario and so BPNZ and Westario Power are committed to helping communities by installing more EV charging stations in public places through a turnkey program. The initiative will allow municipalities to lease EV charging stations from ChargePoint, which will install and fully service the stations, while Westario Power will provide the final connection to the distribution system.
The first EV station to be put into place will be in the Municipality of Brockton and will operate from this summer. It will be the first of three planned for the community of about 9,500.
