Newfoundland and Labrador’s Electric Vehicle Network Announced

The province’s first electric vehicle fast-charging network has been announced.

Through Budget 2019, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador provided $1 million and the Government of Canada announced $770,000 on Friday that will purchase and install 28 electric vehicle chargers across the province to support the transition to a clean energy future.

Funding will help Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro to build a fast-charging electric vehicle network along the Trans-Canada Highway, connecting St. John’s to Port aux Basques, including one location in Gros Morne National Park.

Fourteen sites will contain both a fast charger and a Level 2 charger. The construction of the first site is scheduled to start in September.
