Electric Vehicle Charging

City Charging Stations

On November 1, 2023 the City of Chilliwack implemented user fees on all municipally owned electric vehicle chargers. These rates were implemented to allow the City to pay electrical and maintenance costs and were approved by Council during the regular meeting of July 4, 2023. The new fees are:

  • $2.00+PST per hour charge on level 2 chargers
  • $0.30+PST per minute charge on level 3 fast chargers

Pay by downloading the FLO App, registering for a flow usage card or paying by credit card. More information regarding charging and payment can be found on the FLO website.

The City gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, and contributions in support of transportation and alternative fuels program from the Department of Natural Resources.


The province of British Columbia passed the Zero-Emission Vehicles Act (ZEV Act) on May 30, 2019. This legislation requires that the percentage of sales and leases of light duty electric vehicles (EVs) reach 10% by 2025, 30% by 2030, and 100% by 2040.

To support this provincial target, as well as local priorities for climate action, air quality and green house gas reduction, the City is moving forward with requirements and guidelines for EV charging stations in new developments, as well as expanding the City-owned public charging network.

In February 2022, Council approved the purchase of 12 new electric vehicle charging stations that will provide 22 charging ports in seven locations throughout Chilliwack. Ten of the new stations will be dual-port, Level 2 chargers, and two will be single-port, Level 3 chargers.

EV Charging Requirements for New Developments

In August 2020, the City of Chilliwack amended its Zoning Bylaw to require EV charging infrastructure in all new residential developments.

These maps provide real time status of availability, locations and directions. They also have options for smartphone apps that can communicate additional updates directly to the user, notifying them when charging is complete or interrupted:
