Vancouver Condo Developers may be facing new requirements as Vancouver City Council decides whether or not to require installation of Electric Car Charging terminals in at least 10% of all new Condo developments. The vote will go through on thursday. Charging stations are common in Europe and several cities in the United States, which is prompting Mayor Gregor Robertson to address this issue.
The idea behind this is that requiring developers to invest in charging stations may serve as a catalyst to potential electric car buyers to purchase these types of vehicles, and reducing their carbon footprint.
