EV Charging Stations available at our Salmon Arm & Armstrong location. The vast majority of electric car charging happens at home or work, and in British Columbia 95% of all car trips in BC’s urban areas are less than 30km, well within the range of a typical electric car. However, public charging infrastructure is also needed to allow people to top up while they go about their daily errands, to support longer road trips, and to provide peace of mind for drivers, should they need those extra kms.
The majority of Level 2 (240volt) public charging stations are free to use (like the ones at Armstrong Co-op), but there are a few that require drivers to join a service network to access the stations. Members are offered various ways to authorize the use of a charging station, such as scanning a member card at the desired charging station. EV owners can obtain a member card by registering online with the charging service networks. Some networks stations can also be authorized through a smart phone app or a credit card. There are currently three predominant networks in B.C.: ChargePoint, Flo (Addenergie), and GreenLots (for DC fast chargers). Learn more about service networks and membership options in BC.
