Nova Scotia's new electric vehicle network

Nova Scotia Power and Emera celebrated the “first charge” of Nova Scotia’s new electric vehicle fast-charging network on June 25.

“Connecting our province end-to-end with EV infrastructure is a significant step toward achieving a lower carbon future driven by electrification,” said Karen Hutt, President & CEO of Nova Scotia Power. “Nova Scotia Power is focused on providing our customers with innovative energy solutions that meet their needs and help the environment.” 

Nova Scotia is now connected end-to-end with electric vehicle fast-charging stations. The fast-chargers are strategically located to enable EV drivers to travel across the province with ease. The location sites were selected based on a number of criteria including proximity to a 100-series highway, each located approximately 65 kilometres apart. The locations are:

Yarmouth, Shell

Digby, Sobeys

Coldbrook, Sobeys Fast Fuel

Shelburne, Sobeys Fast Fuel

Liverpool, Sobeys

Bridgewater, Best Western

Elmsdale, Sobeys

Debert, Masstown Market

Stellarton, Sobeys Fast Fuel

Monastery, PetroCan

Baddeck, Lynwood Inn

North Sydney, Sobeys

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.
