This contribution will help install 98 electric vehicle (EV) charges across the province, including one right here in Langley Township at the 7-Eleven located at 20250 88th Ave.

7-Eleven Inc. received $300,000 of the total investment to install six EV fast chargers in Vancouver, Langley, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Kamloops and Victoria.

The remaining chargers will be installed at various locations throughout Vancouver.

Transportation accounts for 25 per cent of total greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, according to the federal body. They are working to achieve a target of 100 per cent zero-emission light-duty vehicle sales by 2035.

The new EV chargers will be installed sometime between now and November 2022.

City of Langley has two EV chargers at the City Hall parking garage which is currently not available to the public due to COVID. An opening date was not provided.
