Free event in Halton Hills to teach residents about electric vehicles


Published September 7, 2021 at 4:26 pm

Halton Hills residents interested in learning about electric vehicles (EV) and local charging stations are invited to attend a free event that will feature displays, free test drives and information booths.

The event, called “EV Extravaganza,” will take place on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the parking lot of Mold-Masters SportsPlex, located at 221 Guelph Street.

“With around 49 per cent of local greenhouse gas emissions coming from transportation, the EV event is a great way to learn how electric vehicles can help achieve our goal of becoming a carbon-neutral community,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette, adding that a partnership between the municipality and Ivy Charging Network saw the installation of six new EV chargers in Halton Hills.

“We know we need the infrastructure in place to change behaviours and encourage the purchase of electric-powered vehicles, so I am very pleased to advise that we now have 26 EV chargers available to the public.”

The Ivy Charging Network Level 2 EV charging locations include Dominion Gardens, Georgetown Fairgrounds, the Robert C. Austin Operations Centre, Halton Hills Headquarters Fire Station, the Edith Street parking lot and the Willow Street parking lot.
