RDN eyes charging stations
The Regional District of Nanaimo and local municipalities are looking to install 12 level two electric vehicle charging stations throughout the region by next spring.
The RDN received a provincial planning grant from the Community Charging Infrastructure Fund and Fraser Basin Council to identify locations for two stations each in Parksville and Qualicum Beach and one each in Lantzville and the seven electoral areas.
Chris Midgley, RDN manager of energy and sustainability, explained they are working on a long list of possible locations and will start to evaluate and whittle down the list.
The City of Nanaimo also earned a similar, separate grant for 12 locations within city limits.
