Chilliwack mayor Sharon Gaetz shows off one of the City's new electric vehicles. Situated in front is a free-to-use charging station.
ew electric vehicle charging stations are ready for public use at two locations within Chilliwack. These stations are now part of a province wide network of up to 570 electric vehicle charging stations accessible to the public and fleets.
This expanded network will offer electric vehicle drivers greater security, peace of mind, and extended travel options.
"We are pleased to be plugged into the expanding charging station network,
and to be able to offer this free service to our residents and visitors,"
says Mayor Sharon Gaetz. "93% of electricity generated in BC is clean
energy, and we believe this project demonstrates our firm commitment to
preserving our community's environment."
It is an important step in allowing the public to pinpoint the exact
locations of station and the charging availability when planning their
journey. The Chilliwack charging stations can be found in two locations, the
Chilliwack Visitors Centre at 44150 Luckakuck Way and at Chilliwack City
Hall, 8550 Young Road.
