Crews installing charging stations

Summerland will soon have electric vehicle charging stations in place, but the price of charging has not yet been determined.

Summerland will soon have electric vehicle charging stations in place, but the price of charging a vehicle at the stations has not yet been determined.

The charging stations, at the parking lot on Victoria Road North near the Post Office and at municipal hall, will have 240-volt power for electric vehicle charging.

Julie McGuire, long range planner and climate action coordinator for the municipality, said municipal council will determine how much if anything should be charged for the electricity use.

In Osoyoos, there is no charge for motorists using the charging stations.

At Okanagan College, those parking at the campus pay a parking fee, but no additional fee is levied for those using the charging stations.

The Summerland stations will be officially opened next month during Earth Week events.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the station at municipal hall on Friday, April 19 at 2:30 p.m.
