Toronto is getting more charging stations for electric vehicles in the city and this is where you can charge

Anyone who drives an electric car in Toronto could have less of a headache looking for a place to charge their vehicles soon.

On Tuesday, May 17, the City together with Toronto Hydro announced that they will install an additional 32 street electric vehicle charging stations by the end of the year.

These chargers will be installed on 17 residential streets in on-street permit parking areas, in locations where homes do not have access to private parking lots or garages. This will be in addition to the 17 EV charging stations the City has already installed, which Toronto Hydro says can be found in areas such as Palmerston Avenue, Wellington Street West and Shaw Street.

“In addition to expanding Toronto’s street-charging infrastructure, the city is increasing EV adoption by requiring new buildings to have the infrastructure to support EV charging, providing funding to support and encourage the installation of charging infrastructure EV charging in existing buildings and by providing public EV charging stations in Green P parking lots (up to 500 by the end of 2024) and in city facilities,” the statement said.
