Level Three electric vehicle chargers were installed within Wellington County back in April.
The County took a two month period to determine a set price on charges, while keeping them free for the time being. Staff mainly wanted to determine how often the chargers were being used and what it cost them to operate before setting a charging price on the stations.
At a County Council Meeting, a staff recommendation was passed to charge $12 per hour, with a flat rate of $2.50 per session. The changes will come into effect tomorrow.
A Level Three charging unit can fill up your vehicle’s battery to 80% during a 20-30 minute session.
The chargers are located at the Arthur and Puslinch Libraries, and at the social services building on Wyndham Street.
