The Canadian government has announced new investment for electric vehicle chargers in the province of Nova Scotia.
On Friday, Natural Resources Canada announced it would invest $100,000 CAD into Nova Scotia Power to install 20 EV chargers at the latter’s facilities across the province. Nova Scotia Power will also contribute over $134,000 CAD for these chargers, taking the total project investment to nearly $235,000 CAD ($186,000 USD).
“We’ve built electric vehicle charging stations from St. John’s to Victoria, and now we’re building more right here in Nova Scotia. Investments like this make it easier and more affordable for Canadians to drive electric,” said Seamus O’Regan Jr., Minister of Natural Resources in a statement.
These new chargers are being funded by the Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program, and will be installed and operational by the fall of 2022.
