Lead Proponent: Fastcharge TCH
Location: Ontario and Manitoba
EIP Contribution: $ 8 M
Project Total: $ 17.3 M
Strategic Area: Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstrations
The objective of this project is to demonstrate an electric vehicle fast charging network across the Trans-Canada Highway that can serve rural areas with low-power grid connections. The network will include 34 stations, each with three charging heads, connecting Ontario to the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border along the TCH.
The outcome of this Project is the reduction of Canada’s GHG emissions by demonstrating infrastructure that enables the wide-spread adoption of electric vehicles.
It is hoped that this demonstration will lead to further EV station connections across the TCH.
