Electric Vehicle Chargers Ontario Program (EVCO): Application Deadline is February 12, 2016

The province of Ontario is putting its new Climate Change Strategy into action by investing $20 million this year from the Ontario Green Investment Fund to support the build-out of a network of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across Ontario.

Ontario’s new $325 million Green Investment Fund commits money for projects that fight climate change. These investments are part of the government’s plan for securing a healthy, clean and prosperous low-carbon future by transforming the way we live, move, work and adapt to our environment while ensuring strong, sustainable communities.

Through the $20 million Electric Vehicle Chargers Ontario grant program, the province is seeking public and private sector partners to create a network of fast-charging electric vehicle stations in cities, along highways and at workplaces, apartments, condominiums, and public places across Ontario.

Electric Vehicle Chargers Ontario Program (EVCO)

The program is a one-time competitive application-based grant program designed to cover the purchase and installation cost of public fast-charging stations for EVs along major inter-city transportation corridors and in urban centres (including workplaces, apartments, condominiums, etc.) across the province.

Through the program, the Province is seeking public and private sector partners to create a network of optimally distributed public fast-charging stations that enable EV drivers to travel between and within cities. Applicants are encouraged to propose projects that support inter-city and/or in-city fast charging stations that can be implemented at select locations or that could create a broader network.

Applications open on December 21, 2015. The deadline for EVCO applications is Friday, February 12, 2016.
