City now installing public EV charging stations

July 25, 2018 -

The City of Kingston is now installing 48 public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at 21 locations, making it easier than ever to be an EV driver in Kingston.

"As part of the City's commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we hope that providing the infrastructure to support electric vehicles will encourage more residents to adopt this environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional cars," says Paul MacLatchy, environment director.

Charging station parking spaces will be clearly marked with signage. During a trial period, Level 2 stations will be free for public use with the payment of normal parking fees. Level 3 fast chargers will require payment to use. To view the full list of future EV charging stations visit

Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations are being installed as part of Kingston's network. Level 2 charging stations typically deliver a full charge in four to six hours and Level 3 fast chargers deliver a full charge in less than an hour.

Charging stations in the City's public network are owned by the City and will be operated by FLO, Canada's largest electric vehicle charging network.
