New electric vehicle charging stations at WRDSB Education Centre, six public schools

They’re available to the public over summer break from 7 am to 11 pm

The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) is making it easier for staff and community members to charge their electric vehicles.

Seven new electric vehicle charging stations are now available, including at the WRDSB Education Center on Ardelt Avenue.

The six others are located at various public schools.

The board launched its first charging station at Chicopee Hills Public School in Kitchener in 2019. According to a WRDSB release, the station has helped avoid 8,241 kg of greenhouse gases. “This is like planting 211 trees and letting them grow for 10 years.”

Over the summer break, charging stations are available to the public from 7 am to 11 pm Once the school years starts, they’ll be open to the public from 4 pm to 11 pm
