Going Electric to Eliminate Fossil Fuels

Did you know that over 60% of the greenhouse gas emissions in Kamloops originate from on-road transportation? The City of Kamloops is taking steps to promote and support the switch from fossil fuels to electric alternatives. Here are the steps we are taking...

100% Electric

In 2013 the City of Kamloops installed two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Both charging stations are OPEN to the public; and FREE of charge.

Level 2
The Visitor Centre1290 Trans-Canada Hwy has a Level 2 EV charging station, which charges both electric and hybrid vehicles. It is a 60 AMP station with a 2-3 hour charging time.

DC Fast Charge

Additionally, the City has acquired its first fully electric vehicle - the Nissan LEAF.
