TORONTO, ON – Ontario has unveiled a new Workplace Electric Vehicle
Charging Incentive Program to help those that want to install charging
The new initiative will cover up to 80% of the cost of Level 2
chargers, up to $7,500 per charging space. Those stations offer 240-volt
Applications open today and will be reviewed and processed until program funding is gone.
There are currently 1,300 public vehicle chargers in Ontario, while
the province has invested about $2.2 million to help install about 2,600
home charging stations since January 2013.
The number of commercial electric vehicles in the province is
essentially non-existent at this point, but the province does have about
16,000 smaller electric vehicles on the road.
“The electrification of transportation is happening fast, and the
Ontario government is committed to building the necessary infrastructure
to meet this demand,” says Transport Minister Steven Del Duca. “By
building more electric vehicle charging stations at workplaces across
Ontario, we’re also encouraging more drivers to make the switch to an
electric vehicle and building Ontario’s future.
