The City of Port Coquitlam is considering changes to bylaws and policies in order to promote and accommodate the increased use of EVs. The changes would include requiring basic EV charging infrastructure in new residential buildings, and in other buildings under certain circumstances.

What’s being proposed:

  • New ground-oriented residential buildings: Require rough-ins of Level 2 EV charging infrastructure in the parking area to ensure one space per unit has access to a future outlet.
  • New apartment buildings: Require rough-ins of Level 2 EV charging infrastructure in the parking area, with outlets accessible to each resident parking spot (not required for visitor spots). Outlets may be shared between spaces.
  • Existing multi-unit residential buildings: When the building’s electrical supply is changed, require the new power supply to be able to support potential EV charging demands.
  • Commercial, industrial and institutional buildings: During rezonings, promote pre-wiring or rough-ins for Level 2 EV charging for a share of parking spaces, as appropriate on a case-by-case basis.

The proposed changes are intended to:

  • Address the growing demand for and use of electric vehicles.
  • Help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by promoting EV use.
  • Align with the City’s Environmental Strategic Plan, Corporate & Community Climate Action Plan, and Official Community Plan.
