About the network
Nova Scotia Power’s EV fast-charging network addresses the need for high-speed charging stations, lack of which was a primary inhibitor to Nova Scotians adopting electric vehicles. This effort is part of a larger initiative to build a coast-to-coast
network of electric vehicle charging stations across Canada.
The Level 3 fast-chargers charge an electric vehicle in 15-30 minutes, at a cost of $3.75 per 15-minute session.
The charging stations are manufactured by AddEnergie, a North American leader in EV charging solutions, and are connected to AddEnergie's FLO
Network, Canada's largest EV charging network.
Using the free FLO mobile app, EV drivers can easily locate the charging stations, check their availability in real time, and pay for charging sessions.
The network enables Nova Scotia Power to study the effects of electric vehicle fast chargers on the power system.
The Government of Nova Scotia has installed an additional 12 Level 2 chargers at the same locations. These chargers will provide a charging solution for plug-in hybrid vehicles that are unable to charge using the Level 3 chargers.
