Car plugging into an electric vehicle charging station

Moving away from gas and diesel vehicles is one of the most important actions that residents can take towards achieving Ottawa’s greenhouse gas reduction targets. Electric vehicles are one key way to do this. The City is developing a personal electric vehicle strategy to support the uptake of personal electric vehicles in Ottawa.


Have your say on the personal electric vehicle strategy

We want to hear from you! Complete the personal electric vehicle strategy survey by September 10.

The responses to this survey will help us:

  • Make it easier for residents of Ottawa to transition to an electric vehicle
  • Prioritize the actions needed to overcome barriers to electric vehicle adoption in Ottawa
  • Prioritize the number, location and type of charging stations to be installed

The results of the survey will be used to inform the personal electric vehicle strategy that will be considered at Environment and Climate Change Committee.

Take the survey


Personal vehicles represent just one part of the transportation system, the personal electric vehicle strategy is focused on this one segment. The Transportation Master Plan is the City’s plan for mobility generally in Ottawa. The Transportation Master Plan is being updated to ensure it meets the mobility needs of our growing city, addresses climate change, creates a healthy and equitable transportation system and responds to emerging technologies and trends.

    Does the taxpayers pay for these charging stations?

    Shannon R asked over 1 year ago

    Hello,

    Users of the charging stations are charged a fee. These fees cover operational and maintenance costs, and over time help to offset the upfront costs of installation. The upfront cost for design and installation of the charging stations are project specific. For example, the 24 on-street charging stations that were installed earlier this year were funded by the City with support from the federal government under the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program.

    Please reach out if you have more questions.

    Is the $2.00/hour charge also the minimum charge. if you plug into a FLO charger or is a 30 min charge $1.00 ?

    W Wood asked over 1 year ago

    Hello,

    Thank you for the question. There is no minimum charge. Users are charged by the minute and the total amount paid is pro-rated at $2 per hour. So if you charge for 30 minutes it will cost $1.

    Please reach out if you have more questions.
