Recharge at City Locations

The City of Nanaimo has installed charging stations at six locations around town. Recharge your electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) while you swim, skate, play tennis, walk on the waterfront or visit downtown. Fast forward to the future, and as more zero emission electric vehicles are produced, there'll be even more of these plug and play options.
