NS Promotes Expansion of E Charging Stations

The Province is investing a half million dollars to help install more electric vehicle charging stations across Nova Scotia.

The Minister of Natural Resources says, “Electric vehicles can play a big role in reducing emissions and helping us achieve our goals of having a cleaner economy that creates jobs, supports a healthy environment, and benefits all Nova Scotians.” Tory Rushton says, "Having more community chargers will give people reliable options so they can use their electric vehicles anywhere in the province." 

The provincial investment is in addition to the $1.2 million recently announced through the federal Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program. Clean Foundation will administer the funding and will seek proposals from organizations to install up to 250 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers. 

The chargers will be installed across the province in public areas and will support light-duty vehicles.

The Pugwash Village Commission has championed the installation of such chargers as an environmental issue and a tourism effort. Chargers installed to date, tend to follow the major highways and inhibit rural efforts to build on the many off the beaten path attractions.

Adding such stations along Route 6 and other secondary highways will open rural areas to the growing number of travellers driving electric vehicles, while making EVs more attractive to rural residents.

Clean Foundation expects to start accepting proposal submissions from interested organizations in February.

Eligible organizations include electricity or gas utilities, companies, industry and research associations, standards organizations, Indigenous and community groups, academic institutions, and different levels of government.

More information about the project to add more Level 2 charging stations is available at: https://cleanfoundation.ca/evboost/.
