RD to seek funding for charging stations

The Fraser-Fort George Regional District will be part of two applications seeking a total of $800,000 for electric vehicle charging stations in northern B.C.

The FFGRD is among six regional districts who are members of Charge North, which supports development on electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the region.

Applications will be going forward to the B.C. Rural Dividend Fund and Northern Development's strategic initiatives fund. Securing the funding comes without a financial commitment from the FFGRD, staff said in a report to directors.

As part of its CleanBC plan, launched in December 2019, all vehicles sold in B.C. must be zero-emission by 2040.
