Prince Edward Island will be adding six new EV charging stations

Public EV charging station

There will be new electric vehicle (EV) charging options in P.E.I. next year, as the local government has plans for charging stations at six new locations around the province, as detailed in a tender issued earlier this week.

The proposed locations include Montague, Alberton, the main government parking lot in Charlottetown, Access PEI and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, according to a report from the CBC.

The P.E.I. government has a sustainable transportation action plan which was announced just last month, which also calls for charging stations in in O’Leary, Borden, Summerside, Charlottetown, Wood Islands and Souris. Those are already under construction, and are expected to be ready for the public in early 2020.

Those chargers will be part of the Flo network, adding to the two already available in the P.E.I. National Park. Despite no provincial rebates in P.E.I. for purchasing an EV, the government is aware that interest in EVs is growing rapidly, and they want to be able to draw EV travellers to their province with these new chargers.

City official said they hope to have all charging stations complete and available to the public by June 2020.
