Battery-powered car owners can now charge up at one of Port Moody’s new electric vehicle charging stations. Three of the new stations are easily accessible at the Recreation Complex, Rocky Point Park and Kyle Centre. A fourth charging station is located at the City’s Works Yard, which serves the City’s fleet of vehicles as well as facility visitors.

We’re making it easier for our community to make a sustainable choice that readily benefits future generations.”

The City invited owners of battery-powered cars to celebrate the new electric vehicle charging station at Rocky Point Park on April 16. The cars were courtesy of Sun Country Highway, Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association (VEVA), Van Houtte Coffee, Metrotown Mitsubishi, Power Pros Electrical, Green Fleets BC, Fraser Basin Council and Metro Ford. Mayor Mike Clay, Councillor Zoe Royer and Randy Taylor also brought their electric vehicles to the unveiling.

Port Moody received $16,000 from the Province of British Columbia’s Community Charging Infrastructure (CCI) Fund and the City matched this contribution. We’re part of a provincial network of over 500 charging stations set to open this spring. Download a list of list of CCI funded stations and start planning your sustainable road trip today.
