New EV Charger Coming to Nation's Capital

Werbung

ORLÉANS, ON, July 28, 2021 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada is making it easier for Canadians to drive electric and transforming the way Canadians get to where they need to go.

Today, as part of #EVWeekinCanada, Marie-France Lalonde, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages (FedDev Ontario) and Member of Parliament for Orleans, on behalf of the Honourable Seamus O'Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources, announced a $50,000 investment to the City of Ottawa to install one electric vehicle (EV) charger in Orléans to put Canadians in the driver's seat on the road to a net-zero future.

Funded through Natural Resources Canada's Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, the EV charger, which is located at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreational Complex in Orleans, will be available for public use by winter.

Since 2015, Canada has made a historic investment of over $1 billion so far to make EVs more affordable and charging infrastructure more locally accessible. These investments are building a coast-to-coast network of fast chargers and installing chargers in local areas where Canadians live, work and play. The government also provides incentives of up to $5,000 to help Canadians buy EVs and full tax write-offs for businesses purchasing them.

These investments support Canada's new mandatory target of 100-percent zero-emission light-duty vehicle sales by 2035. Driving down transportation emissions is critical to achieving Canada's ambitious climate change targets and requires a combination of investments and regulations to support Canadians and industry in this transition.

The government supports green infrastructure projects that create good, middle-class jobs and get us to net-zero emissions by 2050.

The Honourable Seamus O'Regan Jr.
Minister of Natural Resources

"Electric vehicles are an important part of our work to meet Canada's climate targets, and I am thrilled that investments like these are being made in Orléans. By installing charging stations, we're building the infrastructure necessary to give our residents a green choice and take advantage of Canada's growing green industries."

Mayor of the City of Ottawa
