Burnaby, in British-Columbia, is one of the many Western Canadian cities participating in the electrification of transportation. Within a radius of 10 miles, we see level 2 charging stations (240 Volts) and level 3 charging stations (fast charging station).

Since September 2016, electric vehicle drivers can do a fast charge at the campus of British Columbia’s Institute of Technology (BCIT). What’s interesting about this is that the charging stations are solar-powered! Known as the OASIS Station, these charging stations are part of the BCIT’s experimental micro-charging infrastructure.
Researchers have then transformed an ordinary parking lot into a bank of solar panels, which provides two rows of parking places with many level 3 charging stations. This project started in 2007, and now these charging stations can fully charge your electric vehicle in only 15 minutes.
In the same line of ideas, to promote the expansion of the charging infrastructure and increase the sales of electric vehicles, the province of British Columbia offers $50,000 to help certified electricians get the necessary training for the installation and maintenance of charging stations.
The City of Burnaby – where people live a very active lifestyle – is home to many parks, lakes, forests, pathways and riverside. This is an outdoor paradise, and let’s just says it goes hand in hand with the electrification of transportation.
