One of the first steps of the Easy Charge Pilot Project will be to test a range of Level II (240V) charge stations. The trial, the first such trial in the Province, will offer a number of vendors the chance to demonstrate their products and services at several EasyPark lots, in a transparent and open manner.
The trial is intentionally small in scope to focus attention on how stations will be installed, supported, utilized and integrated into the ‘smart-grid’. This information will inform potential larger station network deployments within the Province of British Columbia. The first EVSE units will be installed by June 21st 2011 at EasyPark Lot 57 – 453 10th Avenue (Please note: As of May 12, 2014 management of this lot has been transferred back to The City of Vancouver). Additional units will be added at several EasyPark locations throughout the city over this year.
