With the funds from NDIT, 26 local government and First Nations communities will be receiving 47 new chargers, giving EV drivers in the region better access to surrounding communities. NDIT CEO Joel McKay said that this expansion is just the beginning for Northern BC.

“This isn’t a ‘one-and-done’ project. As the number of EVs increase, so does the need for charging stations and I look forward to committing more grant dollars in the future.”/em>

While Tesla recently completed their coast-to-coast Trans-Canada Supercharger network, they currently have no plans for Superchargers anywhere near Northern BC. The closest current location is in Kamloops, so these chargers will be a welcomed addition for Tesla owners in Northern BC.
