Public charging stations
If you’ve already made the switch, you can take advantage of NB Power’s eCharge Network which offers publicly available smart charging stations in New Brunswick.
Level 2 Charging
|240 Volt – Charging station||Charging time|
|BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle)||6-8 hours|
|PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle)||3-4 hours|
While an EV may not be able to fully recharge at a public level 2 charger, oftentimes all that is required is a “top-up” – enough of a charge to get to the next destination or home to fully recharge.
DC fast charging
|480 Volt – Charging station||Charging time|
|BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle)||(80% in 40-60 minutes).|
DC fast chargers use direct current for a high-power charge.
At 480 volts DC fast charging offers a much quicker recharge time for electric vehicles. All electric vehicles (BEVs and PHEVs) can be charged at level 2 charging stations, but only battery and select plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are equipped for DC fast charging.
