Feds invest in EV chargers across Windsor-Essex County

OLDCASTLE, ONT. — The Government of Canada is making a $2-million investment in the Essex Powerlines Corporation to support the installation of up to 300 electric vehicle (EV) chargers across Windsor-Essex County.

With a total cost of over $4 million, the project will be funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

Essex Powerlines is launching the project, Charge Up, which will accept applications from qualified recipients who propose to install charging infrastructure in public places, on-street, multi-unit residential buildings, at workplaces or for light-duty vehicle fleets, indicates a release. Essex Powerlines plans to have all EV chargers available by September 2023.

Since 2015, Canada has invested $1 billion to make EVs more affordable and charging infrastructure more accessible. The investments support Canada’s target of ensuring all passenger vehicles sold in Canada are zero-emission by 2035 and are critical to achieving Canada’s climate change goals.

“Essex Powerlines is committed to building a cleaner future,” said Joe Barile, general manager, Essex Powerlines Corporation, in a statement. “This program will not only assist ultimate recipients with funding toward charging infrastructure but also allow us all to work together to build a sustainable future.”
