King Township Declares Climate Emergency
King Township joined a growing movement across the world by declaring a climate emergency. This declaration was made to help deepen the commitment to being leaders in the environmental and climate change field and help keep climate change at the forefront when considering the impacts it may have on our community today, tomorrow and in the future.
King's NEW Electric Vehicle Charging Network
A $200,000 grant from the Ministry of Natural Resources, which then added to the Township's $300,000 contribution, allowed for the installation of almost a dozen electric vehicle charging stations throughout the Township amounting to 20 charging connectors. The installation of Level 2 chargers and Level 3 rapid chargers that can charge most electric vehicles was completed in February 2022.
The Electric Vehicle Network is a step in the right direction towards achieving the Township's greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.
Charging network information is available through ChargePoint. Simply type in 'King, ON' in the search bar and the charge locations will appear.
