Shape Properties, the Management firm for the first 4 shopping centres above, have calculated that during the first week, (March 8 - 15) all 4 sites included, have used 90 kWh of electricity, saved 128 kg in Green House Gas emissions, and 15 gallons of gasoline. Shape Properties received partial funding from the Community Charging Infrastructure Fund (CCIF) which is administered by the Fraser Basin Council for LiveSmart BC. The use of these chargers will be WITHOUT charge to their customers as Shape Properties wants to encourage the adoption of Battery Powered Vehicles.
