Electric vehicles play a key role in Canada’s low-carbon future. That is why we continue to make strategic investments to help Canadians make greener choices and encourage widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

Member of Parliament for Northumberland–Peterborough South, Kim Rudd, on behalf of Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, today announced a $2-million investment in Sky Solar Canada Ltd. for a total of 12 solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations at five sites across Ontario. Three of the sites are located in Cobourg, one in Markham and one in Oxford Station.

Many of the charging stations are bi-directional, which means they will also be able to deliver energy from the battery to the electricity grid. The demonstration project will help identify economic benefits of bi-directional charging.

This funding is part of our government’s $182.5-million investment to grow Canada’s electric vehicle infrastructure to make using electric and other alternative fuel vehicles easier and more convenient for Canadians.

Through Canada’s national energy dialogue, Generation Energy, Canadians made it clear that the transition to electric vehicles and lower-carbon fuel alternatives is not a luxury but a necessity for Canada’s low-carbon future. Our government continues to support green infrastructure projects that will create jobs, advance Canada’s clean future and help us realize our domestic and international climate change goals.
