City Installing 48 Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

in Science & Tech by

The City has announced it is installing 48 public electric vehicle charging stations at 21 locations in Kingston.

During a trial period, the clearly marked parking spaces will include Level 2 stations that will be free for public use after paying standard parking fees, while Level 3 fast chargers will require additional payment to use.

Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations are being installed as part of Kingston’s network, with Level 2 charging stations typically deliver a full charge in four to six hours and Level 3 fast chargers deliver a full charge in less than an hour.

“As part of the City’s commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we hope that providing the infrastructure to support electric vehicles will encourage more residents to adopt this environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional cars,” said environment director Paul MacLatchy in a release.

The City’s public network of charging stations are owned by the City and operated by FLO, Canada’s largest electric vehicle charging network.
