Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric Vehicle Charging in Parksville

Car owner/driver must have a FLO network card

Five electric vehicle charging stations are available in Parksville, supported by funding from the provinceís Community Charging Infrastructure Fund. There is
no cost to use the charging stations which are part of the
FLO Network.


  • Parksville Civic and Technology Centre, 100 Jensen Avenue East
  •     Station AAA-270 and Station AAA-273 (back of building near Cenotaph)
        Chargepoint #1, #2 and Chargepoint #3, #4 (back of building in library parking lot)
        Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week

  • Station AAA-274 is centrally located in the Parksville Community Park

What do I need to charge my vehicle?
To use the station, you need to be a member of the FLO network.

  • Create a FLO account
  • Add funds to your account using a credit card
  • Download the free FLO mobile app and/or order a FLO card via your account ($15 charge applies).

Having a card is more convenient, as it makes using the machine a tap and go. The network card has the benefit of providing the account holder with a precise summary of electricity used per session/per month. Maps of local stations are shown below. The card account can be preloaded with funds to handle stations that charge a fee.

Why did the City install these chargers?
The demand for chargers is expected to increase as the publicís confidence in this technology grows. While 90% of electric vehicle charging is expected to take place at home, public electric vehicle charging stations play an important role in decreasing the fear of not being able to charge while on the road.

Mid-Island Charging Network
Fifty-five Level 2 chargers have been installed in thirteen communities from Nanaimo to Campbell River as a part of the Mid-Island charging network. This network increases the connectivity across the mid-Island and is part of the environment that local municipalities are building to support sustainable living in their region. With the addition of this charging network, EV users in the region have access to net zero options for transportation.

This multi-year project was accomplished with the partnership of nine local government facilitated by the Community Energy Association and with the funding support of the Province of BC and the Government of Canada who shared the vision for clean transportation.
