Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of personal transportation. Find resources to help you plan your purchase or make the most of EV ownership.

Enabling Electric Transportation

With more than 1,300 electric vehicles registered in our city, drivers across Oshawa are embracing transportation electrification. As adoption continues to increase and additional load is added to our local grid, we recognize the importance of upgrading and maintaining our grid to ensure it can handle the increased demand.
