Description

To support our community’s transition to electric vehicles, our charging infrastructure must be built so that it is ready and convenient to access as people look to adopting electric vehicles.

This action will be led by organizations, businesses, and governments, with support from Sustainable Waterloo Region. Please see below for the most publicly available updates.

As of Fall 2023, applications through the NRCan Education and Awareness Project Funding – Clean Transportation and Clean Fuels have been submitted to further support this action.

THE REGION OF WATERLOO

The ZEVIP project installed 23 charging stations in public spaces within five local municipalities, and at the Regional airport.

THE CITY OF WATERLOO

The City of Waterloo directly owns one publicly-accessible EV charging station (Waterloo Town Square North). There are also three EV charging stations owned by the City-funded organization Grand River Energy. These include Williams Street, Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex, and Father David Bauer Drive at Erb Street.

TOWNSHIP OF WOOLWICH

In 2023 the Township of Woolwich is installing 4 EV charging stations in St. Jacobs.
