A Kamloops councillor is welcoming the addition of two new electric charging stations at the Britton Creek rest area before the Summit on the Coquihalla Highway.
On the NL Morning News, Arjun Singh says, its an important addition to promote the use of electric cars in B.C.
“For the regional driving Vancouver driving yes. I mean part of the issue in the past was one charger which sometimes could go down and we had ours go down was the original one and it was going down quite a bit. Now they have replaced it.”
The second phase includes 28 new stations, in addition to the 30 that were completed in 2016.
B.C Hydro is planning its next phase, which will connect drivers to the north from Kamloops to Prince George – and eventually to Prince Rupert.
