Grand Bay-Westfield to get 5 EV charging stations

By Brad Perry Apr 19, 2024 | 2:16 PM

Five new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are being installed in Grand Bay-Westfield.

The town is one of eight communities to receive funding from Aviva Canada and Earth Day Canada through the Charged for Change initiative.

One charging station will be installed at the Brundage Point River Centre, where there is already an existing station.

The remaining four will go in near the transit stop next to the River Valley Community Centre.

Details on when the stations will be installed are coming at a later date, the town said in a news release.

Other New Brunswick communities receiving funding this year include Cap-Acadie, Bois-Joli, Hautes-Terres, and Kedgwick.

The Charged for Change initiative is a $3-million partnership over three years which allows municipalities that currently lack EV infrastructure to apply for funding to receive Level 2 charging stations.

The program delivered charging stations to seven Ontario municipalities in its inaugural year of 2023. The program opened to submissions from across Canada this year.
