NB Power and Irving Oil has launched first of seven fast-charging stations to be hosted at Irving Oil locations throughout the state. The new fast-charging station is located at Irving Oil’s Big Stop in Lincoln. Fast-charging stations will also be available at Irving Oil Big Stops in Aulac, Salisbury and Grand Falls (St. Andre), as well as Irving Oil sites in Youngs Cove, Woodstock (Murray’s Irving), and Moncton (Magnetic Hill).
Darren Gillis, General Manager, Sales & Marketing Operations for Irving Oil said, “We’re proud to partner with NB Power in offering this technology to our customers. We’re committed to continually evolving our business to better serve our customers and communities, and help put New Brunswick on the map for sustainable transportation solutions.”
Gaëtan Thomas, President and CEO of NB Power said, “We’re very pleased to welcome Irving Oil to the eCharge Network as host to seven of our fast-charging stations. Through our partnership with Irving Oil, EV-drivers now have the option of charging up along New Brunswick’s busiest highway with the convenience of a service station equipped with food, washrooms and other amenities.”
Fast chargers can recharge electric vehicle batteries up to 80 per cent in approximately 30 minutes. The station is a Canadian product made by AddÉnergie, a leading Canadian supplier.
Matt DeCourcey, Member of Parliament for Fredericton said, “This fast-charging electric vehicle station demonstrates both Canada’s and New Brunswick’s commitment to the low-carbon transportation system of the future. Congratulations to all partners making it easier for Canadians to choose cleaner transportation options, and for helping to advance our federal and provincial efforts to build a clean economy, create well-paying jobs, and realize our climate change goals.
