Installation has started on the fast charging EV stations on the west side the Village office. Work is scheduled to be ongoing during the week of November 28-December 1st, 2017. Please be advised that the sidewalk will be closed to pedestrian traffic, as well there will be heavy machinery and crews working in the area during this time.
The Village is part of a $1.4M, locally, provincially and federally funded initiative to facilitate the installation of 2 additional universal Electric Vehicle charging stations with signage and basic infrastructure (valued at over $80K).
One will be a Level 3 Fast Charger with ongoing power charges paid for by BC Hydro. The Village joined this successful Kootenay-wide initiative inspired by the Highway 3 Mayors’ Coalition.
We thank residents for their patience during this installation process.
