Bathurst, N.B. – NB Power and the Atlantic Host Hotel are pleased to announce the commissioning of a standard level-2 charging station for electric vehicles (EV) located in the parking lot of the Atlantic Host Hotel, 1450 Vanier Blvd, in Bathurst.
“NB Power is thrilled to welcome the Atlantic Host Hotel to the eCharge Network,” said Keith Cronkhite, senior vice president of business development and strategic planning at NB Power. “By offering guests the option to recharge their electric cars, the Atlantic Host is helping drivers reduce fuel costs while shrinking their impact on the environment.”
