2017-10-23


Moncton, N.B – NB Power is pleased to announce the completion of its first phase of fast-charging infrastructure along the TransCanada highway with commissioning of a fast-charging station in Moncton at the Magnetic Hill Irving. Electric vehicles (EV) can now charge up in the parking lot at 2731 Mountain Road in Moncton at a fast-charging or standard level-2 station.

“NB Power is proud to ‘lead the charge’ in establishing infrastructure needed to support the adoption of electric vehicles in New Brunswick,” said Keith Cronkhite, senior vice-president of business development and strategic planning at NB Power. “Using the NB Power eCharge Network’s charging stations for electric vehicles, New Brunswickers can save significantly on fuel costs and lessen their impact on the environment.”

“We’re thrilled to work with NB Power to offer a new energy option for our customers at the Magnetic Hill Irving,” said Jason Lutes, owner of the Magnetic Hill Irving. “Electric vehicle drivers can now stop here to recharge while enjoying our service station’s amenities.”

“This electric vehicle network provides New Brunswickers the confidence and convenience they need to make cleaner choices the next time they buy a vehicle,” said the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Member of Parliament for Moncton — Riverview — Dieppe, on behalf of the Honourable Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. “The Government of Canada continues to support green infrastructure in the transportation sector that will advance Canada’s efforts to build a clean economy, create well-paying jobs, and achieve our climate change goals.”

The Magnetic Hill Irving is the tenth fast-charging site along the Trans-Canada Highway, completing the first phase of fast-charging infrastructure roll-out.
