Province provides EV jolts

As the number of electric vehicles on B.C. highways continues to grow, so do the charging stations needed to power them.

The B.C. government announced it has completed 12 charging stations and has several more on the way. It’s all in an effort to relieve “range anxiety,” which is what electric drivers worry about often when they hit the road.

“We’re making it convenient for people who drive electric vehicles to travel across the province,” Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Claire Trevena said in a press release. “Our government is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Investing in green infrastructure is a necessity when it comes to tackling climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”
