Electric Vehicles

The City of New Westminster is dedicated to supporting the proliferation of electric vehicles in our community. The City has developed an e-Mobility Strategy which supports the installation of electric vehicle charging stations across our community, and the City requires new residential, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings to be equipped with the required electrical infrastructure to allow for Level 2 EV charging.

Transportation accounts for approximately 50% of community greenhouse gas emissions in New Westminster; as such, low carbon and zero-emission vehicles will play a vital role in achieving our GHG emission reduction targets.
