There’s going to be even more places to plug in your electric vehicle in the City of Delta.
A recent report to the Parks Recreation and Culture Commission outlined where EV charging stations are located, as of January 2022, and where more municipally-owned stations are proposed to be added this year.
According to the report, North Delta now has 18 stations, Ladner has 10 and Tsawwassen has just two stations.
Proposed for North Delta in 2022 are another 11 city-owned EV charging stations, another four in Ladner and another six in Tsawwassen.
The above photos from a staff report shows where the current EV stations are located, including private ones at the Tsawwassen First Nation, and where new Delta-owned ones are proposed.
Fees are now in effect at all city-owned electric vehicle charging stations in a cost recovery effort.
Similar to other municipalities, the fee structure sees Level 2 stations charge $2 per hour for the first two hours and $5 per hour after that.
While Delta currently does not have Level 3 stations, those would have an $8 per hour fee for 25 kW and $16 per hour for 50 kW.
Meanwhile, Delta council this spring voted in favour of giving preliminary approval for a bylaw amendment for new electric vehicle and electric bicycle parking and charging requirements for new developments.
