Kevin Klein, Manitoba’s Minister for Environment and Climate announced today its government’s support for a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station in the Village of Dunnottar, a news report said.
“Transitioning to electric vehicles will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support a low-carbon economy, and ensure affordability for Manitobans.” said Klein
“This is a big step forward in the transition to a new clean energy future for the coming generations,” said Mayor Richard Gamble, Village of Dunnottar.
As part of a $150,000 initiative led by a Manitoba-based not-for-profit Eco-West Canada, the Manitoba government funded this project with a focus on green infrastructure.
Klein also said that additional projects across Manitoba will be announced in the coming weeks.
The province’s EV charging network supports collaborative planning for regional green transportation initiatives and will be expanded by this project’s technology and infrastructure.
“We are pleased to once again be given the opportunity to partner with the Manitoba government to help our communities adopt cleaner modes of transportation,” said Dany Robidoux, executive director, Eco-West Canada. “In the past we have been very fortunate to have worked with the Village of Dunnottar on several sustainability initiatives, and this is another example on why this municipality is seen as a leader in Manitoba when it comes to the greening of their community.”
