Dedicated to reducing emissions caused by traditional motor vehicles, the City of Markham, in partnership with Alectra Energy Services and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), has installed 22 Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations throughout Markham
The new charging stations located across the city will allow EV drivers to more easily charge their EVs, and help reduce battery range anxiety. This initiative is funded through Alectra Energy Services and NRCan, as part of their Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).
“We are aiming to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050,” Mayor Frank Scarpitti said. “This partnership will allow the city to host the EV infrastructure at no cost to the city while offering market-based rates for EV users.”
The new locations are in addition to the stations found in the parking lot of the Civic Centre. You can find the new EV charging stations at:
- Angus Glen Community Centre – 3990 Major Mackenzie Drive East (4 EV charging points)
