Ottawa EV charging stations delayed
Metro Ottawa

By Ottawa Metro News, July 31, 2017

Four months after Ontario’s network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations should have opened, only two-thirds of Ottawa’s stations are finished.

The Ministry of Transportation’s website lists 11 stations as “in service” and seven stations as “coming soon,” including stations not yet open in Barrhaven, Kanata, downtown and Old Ottawa East.

They should have been finished by March 31, but Bob Nichols, the ministry's spokesperson, said they will now open this fall.“The time it takes to install, test and put a charging station into operation varies in each case," he said in an email, adding each partner dealt with unique circumstances, including "geography, available infrastructure and utility services.”
