    Hydro Ottawa to Distribute Funding for EV Charging Stations

  • Oct 19, 2021

    Hydro Ottawa announced that it will soon receive support to help distribute funding to eligible applicants for EV charging stations within the city of Ottawa boundaries.

    This funding initiative will provide up to 50 per cent of project costs for the purchase and installation of EV charging stations for:

    • multi-unit residential buildings;
    • light-duty fleets;
    • workplaces;
    • on-street parking; and
    • public places such as retail, restaurants, service stations, medical offices and more.

    Private residences, even if a business is registered at the location, are not eligible for this funding.

    As part of Canada's mandate to get to net-zero emissions by 2050, the Government of Canada has set a mandatory target for all new light-duty vehicles and passenger trucks to be zero-emission by 2035. One of the key barriers to zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) adoption is the lack of charging stations. The goal of this initiative is to break down barriers associated with EV adoption by expanding EV infrastructure.

    In the coming weeks, Hydro Ottawa will release more information about this initiative, the application process and deadlines.
