“This Council views these new chargers as an economic benefit to the community as we now have more public infrastructure to entice tourists to our community to visit and support our local businesses,” says Doug Black, Mayor of the Town of Carleton Place.
“This also provides an opportunity for the Town to consider more sustainable options for our municipal fleet in the future.”
“We thank the Town of Carleton Place for choosing Ivy to help them bring electric vehicle charging infrastructure to their community. By expanding our network to offer level 2 chargers, we will ensure that EV drivers today and, in the future, have a trusted network to get them where they need to go,” said Michael Kitchen, General Manager, Ivy Charging Network.
“We’re making electric vehicles more affordable and charging more accessible where Canadians live, work and play. Investing in more EV chargers, like the ones announced today in Ontario, will put more Canadians in the driver’s seat on the road to a net-zero future and help achieve our climate goals,” said the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources.
Ivy Charging Network is a joint venture between Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) with partial funding from Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program.
