May 9, 2024 | By Anthony Capkun

May 23, 2024 – With the help of the Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP), Prince Edward Island is receiving $1.4 million to install 13 electric vehicle fast chargers across the province.

“For PEI’s net-zero plan to succeed, we need to reduce transportation emissions,” said Steven Myers, Minister of Environment, Energy and Climate Action. “The Government of Prince Edward Island is making PEI the nation’s most EV-friendly province by expanding the charging network across the province, especially in rural areas.”

The fast chargers are expected to be installed by September 2025. Natural Resources Canada’s ZEVIP provides funding that supports the installation of electric vehicle chargers in multi-unit residential buildings, at workplaces and public places, on-street, and where EV fleets are serviced.
