Vehicle charger project nearing completion

Electric vehicle owners will soon be able to charge their rides in a hurry in Dauphin.
While the physical structure of the Level 3 Electric Vehicle Charger and the necessary upgrades to the Hydro service were completed by the end of last year, difficulties in the delivery of a new transformer to link the two have delayed completion of the project.
“It’s the final piece of the puzzle. We got delivery of that and it was the wrong one. So it was ordered again and it was again the wrong one. So we’re getting a third one and it’s the last week in January is as soon as that gets in,” city manager Sharla Griffiths said.
“It will be installed and ready to go, assuming this transformer is the right one, by Jan. 31, is our is our target date.”
